I used one big ripe mango (already frozen) for this recipe. I allowed it to thaw a bit before I blended it with coconut milk.
I usually leave garlic whole or just cut in the middle because I do not the garlic overpowering the curry.
This recipe can serve 3 – 4 people, especially if served with rice. It served my family of four.
The amount of salt you end up adding to the dish will depend on whether you are using a salted broth or not. Also, add salt according to your taste or doctor’s order.
