Sun Dried Mango Curry/Maangai Vathal Kuzhambu

Challengers are challenging! Of course, without a doubt, and I guess, challengers are part and parcel of our life. Furthermore, say what you like, challengers are unavoidable, if we are want to positively move forward in achieving whatever we have set in our mind. Unless otherwise, for those who are contented, doing what you are doing currently, or maybe, not even doing anything, there will no challengers. How about me & my challengers? Remember, I told you before (Plant Based Masala Tofu)? No, no, don't get me wrong. I am not sulking, neither complaining. I take challengers as the stepping stone for my future goals and achievements (Lemongrass Rice & Balinese Fish Sambal).  

Come to think of it, even when its about cooking. Wouldn't you agree with me, cooking can be challenging as well? Maybe, not cooking by itself, but what to cook for the day matter? I know. Its also the same story on my home ground. Then again, considering food is the love for the breathe, body, mind and soul, cooking must go on, and trust me, nothing like home cooked food. Absolutely! Absolutely as well, to the recipe of the day. The absolute fab, delicious, sour, spicy, tongue-rolling, mouth-packing Sun Dried Mango Curry. Sun dried mangoes? They are easily available at the Indian grocers and trust me, won't cost you a bomb. Oh, oh, before I hit it at the recipe, I must tell you that this Sun Dried Mango Curry will be heaven calling for the next day's meal too (South African Fish Curry & Mughlai Vegetarian Kurma). Take care loves!
