The Heinz Curry Mango Sauce was one of the first things that caught my eye when I first looked around at a grocery store in Munich. I was familiar with the Heinz brand since it’s everywhere in the United States but never heard of the curry sauce. I don’t know why it’s not sold in the US. As of the time I’m writing this post, Amazon doesn’t even have it in stock anymore. I brought a small bottle back home with me to try and I have always been buying it whenever I visit Germany ever since. It’s addicting with a sweet-mango-tangy taste. You can easily eat it with chicken, salmon, vegetables, burgers, sausages, rice, sandwiches, and almost anything else that’s savory! Chai likes to even eat it with dumplings. I was creating a list of things to buy in our next trip to Germany when I realized that I wanted to try making the sauce on my own. I managed to be successful on my first try! I think there’s room for improvement since I’ve only tried to make it once but I still think this recipe tastes better than the Heinz brand for several reasons. I put a lot more mango in my version of the sauce where Heinz only puts 4% mango juice in theirs. I also used brown sugar where Heinz uses glucose fructose syrup. The best part is that there’s no preservatives/chemicals/other unnatural things that shouldn’t be in food! It’s so simple to make and you don’t have to go all the way to Germany to try it! I highly recommend making it when it’s mango season!
Yield: 1.25 cup of curry mango sauce
Time: 10 minutes
½ cup mayonnaise*
¾ cup mango*
1 tsp curry powder
1.5 Tbsp brown sugar*
juice of ¼ lemon
-I used the mayonnaise brand Kewpie but feel free to use your favorite brand!
-I used Champagne or Ataulfo mangos
-You can add a little bit more sugar if you desire the sauce to be a little bit sweeter. I personally wouldn’t go over 2 Tablespoons. Always try a little first and adjust to your taste!
1) Put the mayonnaise, mango, curry powder, and brown sugar all in a blender.
2) Blend on low until combined and then blend on high for about 10 seconds
3) Add the lemon juice and then blend until well combined
4) Enjoy and serve with anything that compliments the sauce!
