green mango dilemma

french roast | Nov 16, 2006 08:24 AM

I'm so confused. I've just spent an hour looking stuff up online, and I'm more confused than ever. I have a recipie from and Indian cookbook that is a shrimp dish made with lots of onions and green mango. The mango is cooked with the onions. What I can't seem to determine is if green mangos are just regular mangos that are not yet ripe, OR is it a different kind of mango altogether? I bought 2 green mangos at 99 Ranch market, and they are from Equidor. I just don't know if these will ripen and turn yellow like other mangos, or are the a different breed? IF these aren't the right thing, does anyone know of a Thai or Indian market in LA (hopefully around Hollywood/Loz Feliz) where I could buy the right kind of green mangos?
