Several good suggestions on the part of the other reviewers here. By the time the mango gets to the blender stage, it is thoroughly cooked, so yes an immersion blender might save some cleanup later. I like cumin but in order to let the flavor of the mango come through more prominently, I might use less than a full teaspoon next time. And definitely do use liberal amounts of fresh cilantro, it's a must in this setting. Instead of using breast meat, I gave it an Asian twist by using drumsticks and thighs that I first skinned and then cut into approx 1-inch sections using a heavy cleaver. This added to the prep time of what is already a prep-intensive dish, but if you have a yen to try Nepalese cuisine, this is a very good recipe.

This was a really delicious supper. Honestly, I wasn' tentirely sure about it, but made it to use up a mango we had. I made a half recipe and it served the 2 of us with a little left over. I made the recipe as is, but was a little heavy handed with the chili paste (I used sambaal oleak) and it had a nice spice to it. I used the immersion blender, so also a plus for not having a lot of cleanup! Thanks for posting.

Great recipe! I threw a handful of cilantro leaves, and a few cloves into the blender along with all the other ingredients. Also added cilantro leaves and lemon juice to the chicken. Fantastic!!

This recipe is flavorful. I substituted onions for onion powder, minced ginger for ginger powder. Next time I will use less cumin as to let the flavor of the mango come through.

This recipe was DELECTABLE and very simple to make. The flavors of the spices and chille were very complementary to the sweetness of the mango. However instead of seasoning the meat only w/ SnP, I marinated the chicken in the mango and mango juices before preparing the sauce. This was my first recipe using Recipe*zarr and I look forward to finding more.
