MAAMPAZHA PULISSERI (RIPE MANGOES IN YOGURT GRAVY)

Maampazha Pulisseri is a sweet, sour and spicy sauce which is made with ripe mangoes and yogurt and a very good combination with rice, especially with Kerala rice. Pulissery is a simple yogurt dish which is prepared regularly in every kerala home, pulissery can also be made with different vegetables like okra, pine apple, plantain, but here I made it with ripe mangoes. April – June is the season for King of the fruit s, April- May is the starting time for mangoes, and it's time for pickles in every Indian home, in the middle of the May the mangoes starts lightly ripening, and this mangoes are the best choice for the pulissery with there sweet and sour taste, especially those small verity ripe mangoes goes very well with this gravy. During the season this dish will be the main item in every kerala kitchen.Some people makes this with coconut milk insted of yogurt but I like this with verry little soured yogurt that tastes divine. And here is the recipe………..

METHOD:-----
1. Grind coconut, green chilies, and cumin seeds with little water in to a smooth paste and leave it a side.
2. Cook mango pieces with turmeric, red chili powder with 1 cup of water cook till mango pieces become soft, mash half mango pieces with a fork.
3. Now add ground paste and bring it to a full boil. When it starts boiling switch off the flame and add yogurt immediately (whisk the yogurt before you add it to mango mixture) add salt to taste and mix well.
4. Now heat oil in a pan add mustard seeds and let them popup then add fenugreek seeds, broken red chilies, curry leaves and let then fry for a while then add this seasoning to Maampazha pulissery mix well and serve.
5. Serve with rice and any vegetable stir fry (but should be taste great with any kerala style vegetable stir fry like kovakka Mezhukkupuratti, pavakka thoran or vendakka mezhukkupuratti I prefer that) .
