Mangoes are to the Caribbean what apples are to places like Canada or America. They are a seasonal fruit that can be enjoyed in many, many, many delightful ways from anchar, chow, chutney or just ripened and eaten with juices running down your hands in messy joy. Curried mango is a great snack on it's and an even better as a side. So it is with great pleasure that I share my recipe with you and I do hope you enjoy.

1/4 tsp Turmeric Powder
4 tbsp Oil

5 leaves Chadon Beni chopped
2 Pimentos chopped
