kiwi pulissery.jpeg

Pulissery is a popular recepie prepared for Onam sadhya. As its the month  of Onam I will be posting few recepies related to Onasadhya. And this recepie is one of them but with a innovation. Pulissery is spiced yogurt made commonly with ripe mangoes. It is also prepared with ripe plantain. But here I have used a very different fruit, KIWI.

Do try this innovative recepie which tastes similar like the common pulissery that we prepare and let me know your suggestions and feedback.
