  1. Delicious! Love tropical fruits like mango as the weather warms up (unseasonably so!). I have to admit though – it’s those almonds on top that make me want to dig right into this dish!

  2. Mangoes = deliciousness! I love when it’s time for all the good fruits to be back in season.

  16. Yum, LOVE that you used mango. Have you ever tried cooking with green mango? It’s kind of tangy and lovely in lentil dhal/stew type things. I’ve never actually used ripe mango in savoury dishes like this so this so I’ll be trying this one out… Thanks Joanne!

  17. Interesting. I’ve never tried this before. But I loove having adventures with foreign exotic food!

  18. Time for me to try this delicious recipe out within the next few days for sure.
