Sweet Mango Curry(Step by Step Pics) | Mambazham Curry(Kerala style)

Mangoes are in season now and my family loves mangoes a lot.Mango season usually reminds me of our stay in northern parts of India.When in season,the mangoes go very very cheap and we would indulge them with immense pleasure.Gone are the days,only memories last now.This is a sweet yet mildly spiced curry that serves best with rice.However,kids loved with chapathis too.The curry is mostly similar to mambazha pullissery  which I had posted long back but yogurt is the main missing ingredient.Mangoes that are slightly sour with sweetness does the magic in this curry so be sure to select those kind to get the best taste and flavors of this curry.This is a perfect curry for all vegans.Do give this a try in this mango season and am sure you would love this curry !!
