This dish was really delicious, made as per instructions except I had to use canned mango as we had no fresh. I also added a little chicken stock to the recipe as otherwise I felt it was to dry. You did say you can add vegetable stock if you used corn. The overall flavour was excellent though and my daughter has this earmarked to do again.

This was a very nice, tasty and easy to cook dish. I used precooked prawns instead of raw since those were on sale, and reduced the cooking time. I used frozen peppers and left out the chillies (small kids wouldn't eat it). I used fresh mangos as required. Since my mangos were very sweet, I found it slightly too sweet although I usally like dishes a bit sweet. Next time I might try substituting the mango for pineapple. The seasoning was very good, very balanced (I had recipes were the use of too much 5 spice ruined the whole dish, so be careful to follow instructions here). I added a bit of prawnstock that I had cooked earlier to obtain a bit more sauce as suggested by Latchy. Definately cook again.
