Summer is over! Mornings are colder, the sun keeps playing peek-a-boo with the clouds and Starbucks already started selling Pumpkin Spice Lattes. Summer is the one time of the year that I look forward to the most. The days are longer, the weather just perfect (at least in California) and there are tons of beautiful stone fruits to eat. However, no fruit really compares to my love for Mangoes. I can eat Mangoes as is, or make shakes, use them in smoothies,eat their fruit leather, add them in salsas, I’m sure you get the picture. So when I recently ate a Yellow Thai Curry with Mango I knew I had to recreate it.
This recipe from Minimalist Baker is pretty much the perfect recipe for Yellow Thai Curry with Mango. The best part about this curry is that it take about 40 minutes start to finish, which makes it a perfect weekday dinner too. Just serve it with some steamed Jasmine Rice or Brown Rice and enjoy an absolutely perfect meal.
Dana from Minimalist Baker recommends just using some turmeric and lemon juice with your red curry paste to cook a Yellow Thai Curry, which is a win for me. I always some Red Curry Paste in my pantry, so I can cook this dish whenever I feel like it.
Also customizable is the vegetables you add into it. I tend to add all colors of bell peppers, mushrooms, broccoli, carrots, essentially all kinds of vegetables. I also like to add some crispy tofu because all of us love Tofu. I didn’t add too many serrano peppers to make the meal toddler-friendly but you could always add some more to up the heat.
I made a couple of substitutions too from the original recipe to suit what I had in the kitchen and would like to think that the curry still tasted as good. I subbed coconut sugar for some brown sugar and replaced shallots for yellow onions.
I made this curry multiple times during the summer and my entire family loved it every single time. So the lack of mangoes and this curry is just going to be another reason to feel low about the approaching winters. I haven’t tried the curry with frozen mangoes yet, but if the cravings hit, I might just have to!
Try out this recipe when you can, you are bound to love it!
