Have you ever tried mango in a curry?

You see pineapple quite a lot in Asian-style dishes, but mango works really well too – especially if the curry is a little spicy. The sweetness of the mango works really well with a bit of chilli heat.

This recipe uses homemade curry paste – so you can add as much or as little heat as you like.

Ready in 30 minutes, it’s great for a quick-but-tasty Friday night dinner instead of reaching for the takeaway menu.

Hey guess what!! My kitchen is starting to go in!! The floor is finally down, and Chris has been coming home from work and building all the cupboards in the evening.

He’s sawing away downstairs as I write, with some Christmas tunes on in the background.

Chris’s dad came round on Sunday and helped to move all of the kitchen boxes out of the living room and into the newly built study (temporarily until the cupboards are finished) so we’ve actually got some space to move around.

I even managed to get the Christmas tree up amongst the mess too 🙂

Can’t wait to get cooking in there – the anticipation is killing me!!

I first created this recipe for Superfood magazine.

    Did this with Tofu instead of Prawns – I used a Tofu press and cooked as separate chunks with the red curry paste and coconut milk as a marinade – then cook those separately. I think it works equally well as a veggie recipe. Thanks Nicola! Great Recipe.

    This is so delicious and so easy! I’ve made it for multiple people and given the recipe to them all. I also adapted for a large group by ovenbaking trout, then flaking it up and adding the cooked flaked trout when adding the prawns which is very tasty (and I’ve added other veg to bulk it up when cooking for many). I’ve even just used the paste mixture for other thai style curries, it is so versatile! Thank you for such a wonderful recipe!

    I know I’ve had mango in curry before, I just wish I could remember where? Anyway, I remember it being delicious. This looks like such a yummy recipe, and I’ve been meaning to start making my own curry paste at home. I do typically use the lemongrass paste because I have to drive across town to get the fresh and I am lazy. I can’t wait to give this a try!

    This looks so tasty – i’m sat in work drooling 🙂 And definitely looks like a keeper for a cold wintry night. Love the mango idea, I’ve made a pineapple curry before but not mango, so this is now down on my recipe list! Exciting news about your kitchen and well done getting your Christmas tree up – I’ve only just about managed it and I’m not mid-kitchen refurb 🙂
