Indians take their mangoes very seriously. In a country where there are over 100 different varieties of mangoes, people take pride in the regionality and seasonality of each particular fruit. Whether it is used raw, ripe or sun-dried and powder, mangoes add a depth of flavor to dishes. The slightly tart and sweet pulp balances out spicy and creamy curries like this coconut milk based one. The result is a decadent tasting dish that pleases the whole palate.
