Fresh frozen mangoes with curry? Actually this isn’t so strange. In India, mangoes are often used in savory dishes. This mildly spicy vegetarian Mango & Chickpea Curry sweetly combines two of our favorite pantry items:...


  • 2 tablespoons grape seed or canola oil
  • 1½ teaspoons cumin seeds
  • 3 tablespoons fresh ginger shredded
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • Salt, to taste
  • 1 poblano or red pepper, cored and diced (see Chef Tips)
  • 1½ cups frozen mango chunks
  • 1 cup cooked or canned chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 1½ tablespoons ground coriander seeds
  • 2 tablespoons ground almonds
  • ¼ teaspoon mustard powder (optional)
  • Juice of 1 lemon

  1. Heat the oil in a wide, heavy-bottomed pan. When it is very hot add the cumin and cook for about 10 seconds, then add the ginger. Let that sizzle for another 10 seconds before adding the onions and a pinch of salt.
  2. Cook, stirring until the onion turns golden, about 8 minutes. Add the peppers and continue to cook, stirring until they start to soften. Add the coriander, almonds, and the mustard powder, if using. Stir to mix.
  3. Add the frozen mango chunks and mix in until they are coated with spices and are starting to thaw. Stir in the chickpeas and the lemon juice. If the mixture looks very dry add a tablespoon of water.
  4. Cover and cook for 20 minutes, or until the mangoes are cooked and the flavors are well blended. Taste for seasonings and serve with basmati rice.

Chef Tips

If you want kick the heat up a little but not too much, use the poblano pepper, or, if you really love spicy, add a diced jalapeno with the ginger in step 1.

If you don’t have ground almonds, finely grind 2 tablespoons of whole, slivered, or sliced almonds in a food processor or clean coffee grinder.
