A simple, rich, mango curry with tofu. Bursting with fresh, fruity flavour and deep spices.
Curries are one of my favourite things to make, they pack SO much flavour and are always pretty simple and quick. This fresh mango curry is no exception. The sauce includes fresh mango puree, which adds a delicate sweetness, complimenting the ginger and earthy spices.
You can use canned mango puree in this, but I’ve had best results when blending up a fresh mango myself. With that being said, if you’re going to use a whole mango, it is SO important that the mango is juicy and ripe! If it’s under ripe, you’ll just end up with a pretty bland curry, and that’s sad :(
The idea of sweet and savoury is not a new one, and as weird as having fruit in a curry might seem, it’s been around for a long time and is frequently seen in many cuisines. For example there are lots of fruity Jamaican curry’s, lots of middle eastern dishes include dried fruits in couscous etc, and in more modern times, we’ve latched onto combinations like salt and caramel, salt and chocolate, peanut butter and chocolate.
I promise you’ll absolutely love this mango and tofu curry, it’s quick, simple and a great dinner for sharing with friends!
