Curried Chicken & Mango Rice

This recipe is a cross between a curry, a biryani and coronation chicken. The combination of ingredients, curry powder, chicken, peas, rice and mango quite often feature in a typical coronation chicken salad and also are included here. However I lose the creamy calorie laden sauce and make it far spicier instead. If you want to keep some of the creaminess to the meal then use a couple of spoonfuls of yogurt at the end. This would also take the edge off the spice if it is too hot.
