As promised, I've started to get creative with mangos.
We got this tray of 18 mangos for $8. That's $0.45 each! And they are good-sized, so it is a bargain. This tray was from some kids selling them by the roadside. Are we supporting local agriculture, or future venture capitalists?
Using some leftover mango sauce from VwaV Mango-Ginger Tofu, I made Curry Mango Lentils.
It was easy. Cook brown rice. In a separate pan, saute some onions, then mix in carrots. Stir through a spoonful of curry paste--we used yellow curry paste. Then add 1 cup or so of lentils and twice as much water. Cover, simmer till the water is absorbed, and then mix in as much mango sauce as you can handle. We used a good sized jar of it and found it wasn't too mango-ey. Then we mixed in some green peas and red capsicum, for colour, and topped the whole thing off with more fresh mango! The sweet and spicy combination made for a yummy dinner.
