Notes
*Mangoes are in season throughout summer and if in Queensland, you can buy them by the tray for bargain basement prices throughout February and March at your local fresh fruit markets. Tip – You can buy your mangoes when they are cheap, peel them, remove the seed and pack the mango flesh and cheeks into an airtight container (or freezerproof bags) and place into your freezer. Provided they are packed tightly and there is not much air in the container (or bag), you can successfully defrost them and, to the envy of all of your friends, use them throughout winter.
*To thinly slice chicken breasts I always slice the chicken breasts when they are partially frozen – too easy!
*Curry powder – in Australia, you can use Keens curry powder.
