Apple Pulissery | Apples Cooked in Coconut Yogurt | Kerala Vegetarian Recipe

Fresh-picked green apples turned into a delicious pulissery, Kerala specialty vegetarian dish…

One of the fun activities I look forward to in September is apple picking. There are many apple orchards close to my house. It’s pure bliss picking the fresh apples right from the trees, enjoying the fresh apples & cooking with them.

The apples taste incredibly crisp & delish. I turned the green apples into a lip-smacking vegetarian dish-pulissery. Apples cooked in coconut & yogurt. I must say this is one of the best-tasting pulissery. The slight tart & sweet green apples along with the nutty coconut & tangy yogurt, this pulissery tasted beyond delicious. I just gobbled up this pulissery with rice.
