Hi guys! How are you all doing? It’s been a while since my last post, my apologies. Been so busy. But I am back now and ready to update you all on some of my latest posts.
In Nigeria, I heard the price of tomato has gone up! Oh wow! I pray things get better for Nigeria and I don’t just mean on the price of tomatoes, I mean in all areas. Nigeria is blessed and the Lord will surely have mercy and favour Nigeria!
I digress, so due to hike in tomato price, a lot of people have been wondering what to cook without tomatoes, well, let me tell you, there are loads to cook without tomatoes, from soups to stews and curries. It’s time to get creative and tantalise out taste buds!
So whilst on my quest for a new sauce, I remembered that I have been wanting to cook with mangoes, and then I said to myself make a mango curry! At first I was worried that it may come up sweet, but after I researched I was able to come up with ingredients Picked here and there to make my own combination and I must say it was amazing! Talk about versatility of a fruit! I love it so much and I will definitely be making it again and again.
