Chicken and Mango

recipe postcard for mild chicken and mango curry

I spent fifteen years drawing cartoon postcards every December (it was always a quiet month for design work). This is one of a whole series of postcards based on one of my favourite hobbies – cooking.

I don’t profess to be a great cook, but I love food and learning to cook was a natural progression for me. I was always daunted at first that the wonderful photos in cook books were almost impossible to match at home, so I thought illustrations might be less challenging. Also I wanted to section the recipes into a series of stages as I was always re-reading recipes from the start whenever I cooked something new.

This is a curry, very very mild, not a traditional asian dish (at least I don’t think so) and I have no idea where it originated. It was given to me by a friend of a relative some forty years ago.

If anyone recognises it please let me know.
