Prawn Curry with green mango

First time, ever!!! I am able to resist eating all the MANGOes!!! 

Been wanting to cook this Prawn Curry with green mango for a long time .... at least 4 years,  since H jotted down the recipe on a piece of scrap paper,  while on holiday.
Me being me.... a 'hantu pelam' / numero uno mango eater,  if only you could hear  ... a big loud argument happening... :(

"eat? curry?"... "eat? curry?"... "eat? curry?"

... voices in my head!!!

Most of the time team "eat" will win...

Prawn Curry with green mango

... but this time round, feeling determined, to let the voices on team"curry"  win... I set aside 2 mangoes :P... somehow few slices of sourish young mango managed to find their way into my tummy :O
