Since I experimented with this mouth-watering, spicy mango curry recipe with coconut milk, mangoes have had a hard time to survive in our fruit basket for more than one day.
Not only that this exotic fruit is plain just a wonderful snack, in the meantime I just know too many clean eating recipes where mango is also the perfect ingredient.
Where to buy affordable mangoes?
Luckily, I can stock up our mango at Aldi for a reasonable price. On sale these fruits cost only 0.77 Euro ($0.96) – that’s when I grab a few of them and we celebrate a week full of exotic snacks and dishes in my kitchen:)
For this recipe you could also use convenient, frozen mangoes which in my region I can also get at the discounter. Let me know in the comment section, if mangoes are affordable in your region too and where you buy them.
Mango curry recipe – the mood booster for Easter
When looking at the photos, don’t you think that this yellow dominating mango curry could make a perfect, vegan Easter dish?
Easter is a feast of joy created by nature. We are surrounded by yellow flowers such as daffodils and dandelions and eat yellow dishes such as Easter pancake, Easter eggs, polenta and curry. This has an effect on our state of mind, because yellow is considered to be the real mood booster among colours.
A yellow tablecloth and yellow napkins and/or a bouquet of yellow Easter bells or tulips on the table are the perfect requisites to spend happy hours with family or friends.
Easter is three weeks away. So there is still enough time left to test out this simple and creamy mango recipe in time.
