Mambazha Pulisheri / Mango in yogurt sauce

Pulisheri or Mor Kozhambu is very traditional to make during Vishu celebrations. Pulisheri can be made with Other stuff like Pineapple and Nendra pazham (banana) can be used for making this pulisheri

It is usually had like sambar (mixing with rice). But my husband was not keen on mixing it in rice. So he used it as a side. He liked it though. As for me, that is all I remember eating today.
