Happy Vishu to all my friends and readers !!!
I was reading an article on Vishu (and the dishes made for Vishu) in a Malayalam newspaper yesterday. It was a trip down the memory lane for me. Idichakka thoran (mashed breadfruit stir fry), chakka erissery (jackfruit cooked with coconut and black pepper), kani vellarikka pachady (cucumber salad with yogurt and coconut), chakka pradhaman (jackfruit payasam), mambazha pulissery (mango cooked with coconut and yogurt) ... all watering my mouth and tearing my eyes, and I could smell the wonderful aroma at the same time. Those simple pleasures in life..., It was a great nostalgic feeling.
Mambazha pulliseri is a favorite for all of us. So, here is my version of 'mambazha pulissery' made with the Guatemalan mangoes that I get in this part of the world.
