Chicken Mango Delight Recipe

Chicken Mango Delight Recipe

Chicken Mango Delight Recipe – With some unseasonal, ridiculously hot weather but still wanting a curry fix I produced this dish.

It’s something that’s just a little bit more refreshing. The combination of the mango pulp, a few green chillies, green peppers and then some cream to just lighten and mellow it all makes for a pleasant curry even when you’re melting in the hot weather.

Don’t save it just for the hot weather though! It’s an enjoyable curry no matter what the weather!

The recipe calls for a Yellow Hotel Curry Gravy. This is a hotel style gravy that is lighter on the tomatoes. The usual hotel gravy would overpower the flavours in this curry.

There is a recipe for the Yellow Hotel Curry Gravy below. You only need half of it for this recipe. You can refrigerate the leftover for three days or freeze for another curry another time.

There are other curry gravies here if you want to read more about them.

I used ‘Ome Made Hotel Curry Masala to make the gravy. It’s quite handy if you don’t have all the spices and it also make it easier to blend.

I also used ‘Ome Made B.I.R Curry Masala in the actual curry. It’s the perfect balance of flavours for a dish like this.

As for heat… Add as much or as little chilli as you like. You can add chilli powder at the beginning with the spices if you want more heat, along with extra fresh chillies.

Infact it’s you eating it so be brave and experiment with the recipe to hone it to your own taste!

Yellow curry gravy is the next ‘flavour’ step up from White Curry Gravy. It can still be used for Kormas and mild and medium dishes but has a little more spice and flavour.
