This simple Indian curry is a good example of green mango use. To 50 g desiccated coconut add just enough boiling water to moisten, stir and set aside (or use 70 g fresh coconut). Peel 800 g green prawns and devein them. Peel two green mangoes and cut the flesh into 2 cm cubes. Into the bowl of a food processor put 3 birds-eye chiles (or less to taste), a tablespoon of ground coriander and the coconut. Process to a paste. Peel and slice 2 onions. Chop half a bunch of fresh coriander. In a saucepan, heat 2 tablespoons of oil and fry the onions gently until they are transparent. Add 2 or 3 fresh or dried curry leaves and the coconut paste and continue frying over a low heat, stirring occasionally, for about 10 minutes. Add 500 mL water. salt to taste, half a tablespoon of turmeric, the mango and simmer for 10 minutes. Add half a cup of thick coconut milk and the prawns and cook for a further few minutes, just until the prawns turn pink. Remove to a serving dish, scatter the chopped coriander leaves over the top an serve with rice. From "Raw Materials" by Meryl Constance, Sydney Morning Herald 1/12/93.
