Spicy Mango Curry Sauce 3 Comments

Oct 13, 2008

Did you know the Mango tree plays a sacred role in India? It is a symbol of love and some believe that the Mango tree can grant wishes. Does wishing to have someone clean my kitchen count?

For this recipe I’ve combined mango with a bunch of spices—curry powder, cumin, coriander and chili powder. Curry powder is a mixture of spices developed by the Brit’s. It was developed so they could take the taste of Indian flavors home. This sauce melts in your mouth, the spices give the mango a nice jolt of flavor to counteract the sweetness and softness of the mango. I made this spicy mango curry sauce recipe for a dinner party, and served it alongside cod. It was delicious, sweet, and spicy. An exotic twist.

I have eaten this before at restaurants, I didn't realize how simple it was to make. It's on my to do list for this week.
