Pazham PulisseryPazham Pulissery: Pazham Pulissery is a traditional sweet and sour ripe banana curry. Pazham Pulissery is served in a typical Kerala sadya or Onam sadya towards the end of the meal. It is usually served as an accompaniment to rice. Pulissery is a spiced buttermilk curry with a coconut base. The coconut is ground with spices much like for thoran but the curry is sour (puli=sourness) due to the yogurt/buttermilk we add in.
