Pulissery is that sweet and sour delight that is served right in the middle of a Kerala sadya. It is thicker than usual gravies, but not as thick as Kalan. Pulissery is often made with a ripe fruit or vegetable added to it, making the sweetness pair well with the sourness of the yoghurt. This Vishu, let's try out a seasonal variant – mambazha pulissery made with ripe 'nadan' (locally grown variety) mangoes. Check out the recipe here.

8 ripe mangoes
1 cup grated coconut
4 green chillies
1 cup yoghurt
½ tsp turmeric powder
¼ tsp chilli powder
½ tsp cumin seeds
½ tsp pepper corns
1 cup water
1 tsp mustard seeds
¼ tsp fenugreek seeds
4 dried chillies
Jaggery as required
