This recipe is awesome with just a couple of tweaks: double the mangos sauté the tofu with the garlic and ginger (make sure to cut it small) and add a bit of cayenne. One of my favorite dishes to make always a crowd pleaser. Read More

This was okay. It was my first time making a curry dish. I like how the mangoes were incorporated in this dish and the contrasting tastes of the coconut milk and curry. However it felt like something was missing. Needs more sodium in my opinion. Read More

I am so glad you guys like this recipe so much! It is good with just the tofu but you should really try shrimp or chicken as well. I like to just get the frozen shrimp in the bag. It's cheaper that way but it does take a little more time if you get the ones you have to peel. I think it's more than worth it! I have a few other recipes that have been submitted for a while now. I am hoping that they will eventually get published. Thanks again and enjoy Read More

Try this with shrimp! It's quite delicious. Also since this is entitled "Indian" I decided to make it more Indian in preparation by substituting the sesame oil with ghee and roasted the curry powder (home made) in the ghee before adding garlic ginger and mango. This brings out the spice and flavor of the curry powder. I also added a sliced thai chili. This really brought the heat. Also I garnished the dish with the cilantro (and lime wedges) instead of cooking. Delicious! Read More

I first made this like 2 years ago and rated it like 4 or 5 stars... but today I made it and followed the recipe and it was totally bland and boring. I even added broccoli and red peppers. We had to add like 1 tsp of salt and it was still bland. I think my taste buds have changed over the years... but this was so totally not spicy at all - how can they call it "hot" in the recipe title and it's not even spicy?! Read More

We really just weren't wild about this dish. It may just have something to do with personal tastes but I don't think I'll be making this one again. Sorry! Read More

I tried this recipe twice. The first time I followed the recipe word for word and I thought it was kind of bland. The second time I fried the tofu (after making sure it was fell drained) with the garlic and ginger. I also added asian noodles red bell pepper and onions. I used 4 tbs of curry and maybe a half teaspoon of cayenne pepper. It was better but not fabulous. I think the mango pulp would be better in this recipe than sliced mango. Also what exactly about this is Indian?? Read More
