The mango is a very versatile fruit when it comes to trini cooking as you have seen in previous posts. Today I'm going to show you another way of cooking mango. Masala mango is basically mango with masala in it but the difference between this and mango kuchela, is the preparation and the type of mango used. When making masala mango, my mom likes to use Julie Mango because of it's fleshiness and doesn't have too much fibrous threads like vere mangofor instance. So you could try different types of mango just make sure it's not too "thready".
Your choice of pepper would also be optional but you already know it's not an option for me. In fact I find that if you leave out the pepper, the recipe would not be the same. When we were making this batch of masala mango, my aunt brought a hot pepper but it wasn't seven pot (I know how seven pot looks like with it's rough skin) but boy it was just as hot. We had to treat this badboy pepper just like seven pot, not even wanting to hold it with our bare hands. As you would see in the picture below we had to hold it with a fork to cut it. And when the mango was cooking with this pepper we actually had to stay out of the kitchen. This pepper was making me cough fuss it was hot. Now that is pepper! I think I would have to plant this seed also and make some pepper sauce with it.

I can only get mango Rose here,do you think it would work with this recipe??
I had mango anchar before but only made with mango vere,never thought i could use others .
I guess you would have use what's available. As I mentioned in the post some mangoes are better suited for certain dishes. I would love to taste how it comes out with mango Rose. Now that you mentioned anchar I think I would have to post that one as well.
well I might as well try this one too - lol
Can i use pimento instead of hot pepper?
Sure but it would not be hot though
the hot pepper looks like scorpion pepper, it is the second hottest pepper in the world.
