  1. Heat the sesame oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Cook the garlic and ginger until fragrant and light brown, about 1 to 2 minutes. Add the mango and cook for another minute to soften slightly. Stir in the curry powder and cilantro; cook for another minute to release the flavor of the curry.
  2. Pour in the coconut milk and bring to a simmer. Stir in the tofu and season to taste with salt and pepper. Simmer until the liquid is reduced by half, stirring occasionally, about 5 minutes.

This recipe is awesome with just a couple of tweaks: double the mangos sauté the tofu with the garlic and ginger (make sure to cut it small) and add a bit of cayenne. One of my favorite dishes to make, always a crowd pleaser.

This was okay. It was my first time making a curry dish. I like how the mangoes were incorporated in this dish and the contrasting tastes of the coconut milk and curry. However, it felt like something was missing. Needs more sodium, in my opinion.

I am so glad you guys like this recipe so much! It is good with just the tofu but you should really try shrimp or chicken as well. I like to just get the frozen shrimp in the bag. It's cheaper that way but it does take a little more time if you get the ones you have to peel. I think it's more than worth it! I have a few other recipes that have been submitted for a while now. I am hoping that they will eventually get published. Thanks again and enjoy

Try this with shrimp! It's quite delicious. Also, since this is entitled "Indian" I decided to make it more Indian in preparation by substituting the sesame oil with ghee and roasted the curry powder (home made) in the ghee before adding garlic, ginger and mango. This brings out the spice and flavor of the curry powder. I also added a sliced thai chili. This really brought the heat. Also I garnished the dish with the cilantro (and lime wedges) instead of cooking. Delicious!

I was sooo excited to try this. I like every ingredient in dish but i did not care for this recipe.

I first made this like 2 years ago and rated it like 4 or 5 stars... but today I made it and followed the recipe and it was totally bland and boring. I even added broccoli and red peppers. We had to add like 1 tsp of salt and it was still bland. I think my taste buds have changed over the years... but this was so totally not spicy at all - how can they call it "hot" in the recipe title and it's not even spicy?!

needs more mangoes - perhaps a total of 2 or 3

I'm always looking for good tofu recipes, and this one was a hit. It was very quick to make, and was delicious served over rice.
