Mambazha Pulissery/Ripe mangoes in Yogurt Gravy

This is one of my favorite Kerala delicacy..Mambazha Pulissery
Needless to say it makes me soo nostalgic..!
Brings back the sweet memories of the numerous summer vacations I spend with my cousins at my dad’s ancestral home, which by the way is surrounded by loads n loads on mango trees..
We kids used to gorge on ripe mangoes all day round till we get a tummy ache!!
This time around my mom managed to bring along some mangoes from my hometown and we made this yummiliicous dish!
It’s a sweet n sour n slightly spicy dish and excellent accompaniment to rice!!

Without further adieu here goes the recipe..

Here is what you need
3 small ripe mangoes
1/ 4 Cup yogurt
1/3 Cup water
1/2 tspn Turmeric powder
1/2 -1 tspn Chilly powder
Salt to taste

To grind
1/4 Cup grated Coconut
1 tspn Cumin seeds
2 Green chilies

For seasoning
1 tspn Oil
1/2 tspn Mustard seeds
1/2 tspn Fenugreek seeds
2 Dried red chilies cut lengthwise
2 stems curry leaves

Peel the mangoes and make few slits in the mangoes.
Place the mangoes in a shallow dish, add the water, salt, turmeric powder and chili powder
Cover and cook till the mangoes are almost cooked.
Now add in the ground paste and yogurt and bring to boil and stir gently.

Meanwhile make the seasoning by heating oil in a wok, add the mustard seeds and fenugreek seeds.
Once the mustard seed start to sputter, add the dried red chilies and curry leaves
Add the seasoning to the curry and give it a gentle stir..

There you have the tastiest Kerala delicacy ever!!
