This rich, coconut milk-based curry is a delectable combination of sweet, spicy, pungent and savory flavors. Frying the seasoning paste before adding the other ingredients deepens the complex flavor profile and intensifies the flavors of the spices.

Copyright Recipe © 2015 Woodland Foods



  1. Season shrimp with salt and set aside.

  2. Add chopped onion, garlic, ginger and spices to food processor, and pulse into paste.

  3. Heat oil in medium skillet over medium-high heat. Add spice paste to skillet, and stir to release flavors, about 1 minute.

  4. Stir in sliced onions and chiles, and cook, stirring, until softened, about 5 minutes. Stir in coconut milk, reduce heat and simmer 5 to 8 minutes, stirring occasionally to prevent sticking.

  5. Add shrimp and mango, cover and simmer just until shrimp is opaque, about 3 minutes. Do not overcook. Serve with rice, and garnish with cilantro leaves.
