Mambazha Pulissery is a sweet and tangy curry commonly made with ripe Kerala style Chandrakaran/ Naattu Manga/ Country Mango (a variety, small and sweet mangoes with lots of fibres inside it). Ripe mangoes are added to the curry as whole after peeling off the skin as the size of the mangoes are small. If we are using any other variety mangoes, we can slice and use.
- Squeeze the whole mango/ pieces while making the curry to make it tender.
- Adding jaggery/ sugar is optional – if the mangoes are very sweet.
- Adding hing powder optional but will make the curry delicious.
- Add beaten curd/ buttermilk + water according to the tanginess and thickness of the curry you want.
