Recipe Shed: Chicken and Mango Madras

chicken and mango madras curry
What do you do with some leftover chicken and a slightly under-ripe mango? Why ask Dan Toombs, TheCurry Guy, of course. He suggested this fantastic madras curry, and although I’ve modified his recipe a tad, the spirit and character is the same. This is superb both hot and cold.
Serves 2
Half leftover chicken (breast and leg), chopped into chunks
1 slightly firm mango, peeled, de-stone and chopped into 1 cm cubes
2 tbsp ghee or vegetable oil
Half an onion, finely chopped
3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
Thumb-sized piece of ginger, peeled and finely chopped
2 red chillies, deseeded and finely chopped
1 tbsp cumin powder
1 tbsp coriander powder
1 teaspoon turmeric
1 – 2 tablespoons red chilli powder
1 tsp paprika
Half can chopped tomatoes
Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
1 tsp garam masala (optional)
100 ml double cream (optional)
