Mango Pulisheri

Indian cuisine has a varied sense of taste, smell, and mouth feel. It is absolutely mouth water when you have a little bit of sweetness, tangyness, spiceness all in one dish coming at you from every sides from the taste perspective.
Mangoes are in ambundance through out south India and across various states. The aroma of a ripe mango or for that instance even a mango grove can be distinguished when you land in any vegetable maket in India. The flavor profile of a mango be it ripe or unripe has been enhanced in the cooking methods of people from different states in India. Here is a dish that would have your craving for more.


Mango 2ea
Salt tt
Chilli powder 2tsp
Sugar 2tsp
Yoghurt 1.5 cups
Green chilli 2ea (cut into halfs)


1. Select medium ripe mango and cut them into bite size pieces.
2. In a pot cook the bite size pieces of mango with salt, chilli powder, green chilli & sugar with 1.5 cups of water.
3. Cook until the pieces seem to break apart.
4. Whip the yoghurt in a blender.
5. If the mangos are cooked turn off and let cool.
6. It is the right temperature to add the yoghut to the mango when it is hot enough to the touch.
7. Mix thoroughly.

For the tempering:

Mustard 1/2tsp
Curry leaves 7leaves ea
Dry red chilli 4ea (break up)
Oil 2tsp

To temper in a hot pan add oil, once it starts to shimmer, add the mustard and let it crack then add the curry leaves and the red chillis broken up and then add the mango mixture to it and mix everything together.
It is time to serve. It is going to be a great dish which would be great with rice, or roti.
