It’s raining mangoes, the best thing about summer is this fruit. Days would be dreadful thinking only about the heat. Coming to the recipe, I have another mango dish from Kerala cuisine, Mambazha Pulissery, such a delicious curry, we did really relish this one.

Mambazha Pulissery or mango yoghurt curry is a popular dish from the Kerala cuisine. Pulissery is prepared with other veggies too but this one is uber delicious and part of the Sadya that is prepared during Onam.
