Mambazha Pulissery / Ripe Mango Buttermilk Gravy

As I’m still seeing Mangoes everywhere, the mango season is not over yet! So I decided to make Mambazha Pulissery / Ripe Mango Buttermilk Gravy because I have been dying to make them for Onam (a Kerala festival which is just around the corner). Mambazha Pulissery / Ripe Mango Buttermilk Gravy takes the main role in Sadya.

  • Fenugreek powder – a pinch
  • Curry leaves – 1 sprig
  • Thick Yogurt (curd) – 1 cup, beaten
  • Water – 1 cup + ½ cup
  • Salt – to taste

To Grind:-

  • Coconut – 1 cup
  • Cumin seeds – 1 tsp
  • Ginger – a big piece (or) 1 tbsp
  • Garlic – 2 pods
  • Green chili – 2
  • Red chili powder – ½ tsp
  • Turmeric powder – ¾ tsp
  • Curry leaves – 1 sprig
  • Water – ½ cup

To Temper:-

  • Coconut oil – 2 tsp
  • Mustard seeds – ¾ tsp
  • Dry red chili – 3
  • Curry leaves – 1 sprig


  1. In a blender, add the items given under ‘To Grind’.
  2. Blend it well into a smooth paste and keep it aside.
  3. In a deep bottomed pan, first add the ripe-mangoes.
  4. Then add 1 cup of water, green chili, turmeric powder, fenugreek powder, curry leaves, and salt.
  5.  Mix it well and allow it to boil till the water gets absorbed.
  6. Once it gets cooked well, add the coconut paste, ½ cup of water and mix it. Once it comes to a boil, switch off the flame and allow it to cool down.
  7. In a bowl, take yogurt and beat it well. 
  8. Add it to the cooked mangoes.
  9. Mix it till it blends well.
  10. Heat oil in a pan and add the items given under ‘To temper’and allow it splutter.
  11.  Add it to the Mambazha Pulissery and mix it well.

Mambazha Pulissery / Ripe Mango Buttermilk Gravy is now ready to serve for Onam Sadya!


  1. Don’t blend the yogurt in a blender as it will become watery. So just beat it with a spoon to make sure that it maintains its thick consistency.
  2. You can also use chopped mango pieces instead of full mango.
  3. Make sure the mango is ripe.
  4. Coconut oil gives the dish an authentic taste.
