I have located the perfect recipe to get a healthy meal that doesn’t taste….you know… healthy. Reading about all the health benefits of various ingredients, especially turmeric, has led me down the path of curry, containing turmeric and many other ingredients that are good for everything from Alzheimer’s to heart health and cancer prevention.
In addition to that, I really like the taste of curry dishes, which is the primary reason to make any type of food.

Best of all, this recipe uses coconut milk! If you’re lactose intolerant, you’ve probably used it before to replace cow’s milk and already know it’s packed with vitamins C, E, B1, B3, B5 and B6, as well as a slew of mineral.
However, it also contains a lot of calories, so I love the idea of using pureed mango, also nutritious, to lower the calorie count.
[pullquote align=”normal”]The mango juice does even more! It cuts down on the calories by a third, while enhancing the flavor with its sweet, yet refreshing taste. [/pullquote]
The mango is considered the king of fruit, not only because of its flavor but also because of all the healthy benefits. It does everything to aid in preventing cancer to clearing your complexion and even boosts the bedroom action due to the vitamin E.
But you don’t eat just for health, you eat for flavor. This dish is sooooo yummy, you’ll have people begging for more. I found that I sampled it far more than necessary while it was cooking.
I think one thing that set this apart from the rest is the addition of both the kaffir lime leaves to the sauce, adding a fragrant aroma and delectable taste and also adding the garnish of lime wedges and cilantro. They add to the distinctive, delicious flavor of the dish and make it quite addictive.
Even though I was taste testing it along the way, when I added the cilantro and wedges of lime as a garnish, I gobbled this dish up even faster, feeling smugly healthier in the process.

You don't need to deprive yourself eating this Thai dish because this recipe uses mango puree to make a thick curry sauce but less calories than simply using the coconut milk (mangoes have ⅕th of the calories of coconut milk).
