Top Review by BothFex

Made this the other night after a dinner of spicey curry- this was just the thing. The family loved it. I didn't have any coconut cream so omitted that. I also lacked the mango so I served with choice of toppings: DH liked the toasted coconut, DS#1 liked the crushed pineapple with juice and I preferred the chopped banana in lime juice. Mangos are a definate must for the next time I make this easy, tastey dish.
