    Hello my fellow Trini! I have to say that your site is great. I read the express everyday online and I am so saddened by everything going on down there but you and your site always bring a smile to my face…okay,okay, sometimes I am vexed that I can’t have what you are cooking. I do want to say that your site is wonderful and I wish you the best. Keep on posting those recipes and I will keep on reading(and drooling)

    If cooking is not your first love then you must be a heck of a guitar

    Trying your recipe! I started just as the electricity went out and unfortunately couldn’t remember the recipe exactly. Does it matter if I add the sugar to the boiling water??

    Ok this is a first, but just as in the pic we usually add the sugar after boiling the mango, so I think this will matter. I never saw anyone do it otherwise but if you like experimenting you could try it and tell me the results. I would love to hear about it.

    Thanks so much, this is exactly how I remember Curry Mango tasting all those years ago. I followed your recipe exactly, I went to our local Carribean Market here in Maryland, purchased the ingredients you have listed, and Oh la la, my cravings have been satified.

    I made a pot of stew chicken, to go with it my family really enjoyed it, now I just have to obtain a recipe, and the skill to make fresh Roti skins.

    Thanks again, for this great site, Just think I’d still be suffering if it were not for this web site, My back home cravings just can’t do with out you!!!!!!!!!!!

    I am going to try this recipe and let you know if I’ve FINALLY perfected my curried mango. Too bad we don’t have good GREEN mango here, but whatever I get here in Germany will just have to do.

    I’m not Trini, but my husband is and I have come to love the food! I had curry mango for the first time and fell in love, and I’m so happy to find this amazing recipe online, as well as your blog! The last time I had curry mango, the pits were left in, is it okay to leave them in?

    Hi Stef-fanny,

    Nice of you to drop by. We usually remove the insides of the seed. I hope this is what you’re referring to as the pits. See this pic

    Is there a substitution that can be used for the chadon beni?

    You can use cilantro but use a little more since cilantro is not as pungent as Chadon Beni

    Has anyone had this with Anchar Masala? My mother in law is telling me to make it with that spice… I cant find it anywhere on the internet…

    I made this using granny smith apples and it was amazing. Thank you so much. I used more cilantro and it’s Amchar Masala, we use Chief’s brand, you could find it in a caribbean market or indian grocery.

    You need to post a tutorial for cutting up mangos. When I cut them up, they don’t come out anything like the picture you have here. It looks like you still have the skin attached.

      Yes the skin is still on since it cooks soft…No need to peel :-)

    Hello Felix. My parents were Chinese Trinis. They had their own restaurant in Flatbush Brooklyn many years ago called “Trinidad Chow Mein”. I didn’t grow up with any West Indian cooking skills but I sure do love the food. I live in New England now and it is very hard to find unripe mangos and many of the other ingredients. Thank you for posting the substitutions. Instead of saffron powder can I use the actual saffron strands? Also can I use ripe mango and then omit the sugar afterward? Thank you for your time.

      Hi Mimi,

      Thank you for taking the time to comment. the saffron I’m referring to is really turmeric. So, look for turmeric when you’re shopping. As for the mangoes, they have to be half ripe so you can get the sour taste into the dish. The taste you’re looking for in the end is a semi sweet but peppery taste.

    Sorry for so many reposts. Ok I have turmeric. But I don’t think I’ll be able to find half ripe mangos. Thanks for responding so quickly.
