We recently got plenty of mangoes at cheap price as it is mango season here in Australia. So I am tryng different recipes using these sweet jicy mangoes. I thought of making this mango pulissery today for lunch.

Mango Pulissery or Mambazha Pulissery is a sweet mango curry prepared by cooking mangoes in yogurt and some spices. The curry has a blend of flavours that makes it delicious. It goes well with boiled rice. This is a traditional recipe from Kerala. Malayalees love to make this during Mango season. Let’s see how to make this tasty mango pulissery
