Nadan Mambala Kulambu / Ripe Mangoes Cooked in a Coconut Sauce

Last Sunday I made Malabala Pachadi, Eggplant fry , Kadala Theyal and this one...And it was a total hit except one thing..The thing is I made mambala pachadi and mambala kulambu at the same day...

Mamabala pachadi is a thicker form of this gravy and has some extra special things..But both is a kind of similar ones..But everyone loved it and finished the entire thing..”Lesson Learned Don’t make like this next time”

Pineapples, Mangoes taste even great when cooked in the right form...This is one of those kind of dish..It comes straight from kerala..And you all know that keralan dishes are the best ones..This dish is not a exceptional..It proved it uniqueness..

Amma actually sipped this gravy rather than eating it...This gravy has a sweeter tone rather than spicyness...So great for licking...Without any delay off you go to the step by step recipe with pictures..
