Mampazha Koottan | Ripe Mango in curd gravy | Mambazha Pulissery

This recipe was in my draft for a long time and somehow i missed posting it. From past two three days, i was very busy that i couldn't post any recipes in my blog. As Onam is nearing, many preparations at home and with naughty kids at home, i could hardly find time to sit in front of my computer.

I wanted to put a post on Onam recipes, but couldn't post all the recipes :( May be by next onam i can do that.

This is a very traditional recipe using ripe mango. It tastes sweet and spicy. I learned this recipe from my mom-in-law. Though it tastes good when served with steamed rice, i like to enjoy it just like that. 


5 Mango (small sized, fully ripe)
1 and 1/2 cup Water
Salt to taste
1/2 tsp Red chilli powder
1/2 tsp Turmeric powder
1 cup Jaggery (grated)

For grinding

1 and 1/2 cup Coconut (freshly grated)
1/2 tsp Jeera/Cumin seed
4  green chilli
1 cup Curd (medium sour)

For tempering

2 tbsp Coconut oil
1/2 tsp Mustard seeds
2 - 3 Dry Red chilli
10 curry leaves


  • Wash mangoes well. Peel the mango skin and rinse the skin in warm water (1 and 1/2 cup).
  • Put the peeled mango in a big non stick pan. Discard the mango peel and pour the mango peel rinsed water into the pan.
  • Keep the non stick pan on medium flame. Add turmeric powder, salt and red chilli powder.
  • Mix well, cover and let it simmer till the mangoes are nicely cooked.
  • In the mean time, grind coconut, cumin seed and green chilli into a smooth paste. Add curd and grind again.
  • When the mangoes are nicely cooked, add the ground mixture. Mix well. 
  • When it starts to bubble, take off from heat. Add grated jaggery and mix well.
  • In a non stick kadai, heat oil. Add mustard seeds and when it starts to crackle, add dry red chilli and curry leaves.
  • Pour this tempering on top of the gravy.
  • Serve it hot with steamed rice.

* I usually take the quantity of the ingredients as per my taste. So you can always adjust the spices as per your taste*
