That looks delicious! I love the “make it out of season to wake up your taste buds” idea – I’m going to do this recipe next week, to give me a break from my prep for Christmas dinner(s).
I love the mango in there! Great dish!
Come to think of it, I haven’t had shrimp curry in a while. This would actually go really well with some paratha roti. Sounds like a simple enough meal plan, don’t you think? 🙂

I think I want to make this for dinner, it looks fantastic!
This looks wonderful! I just tried basmati rice for the first time a couple nights ago and I loved it.

I love it when mangoes are added to dishes. They add a great taste!

I love curry of any kind, but this one sounds particularly tasty with the combination of sweet, tart and spicy flavors.
