Cut pork tenderloin crosswise into 1-inch (2.5 cm) thick medallions. In large skillet, melt half of butter over medium-high heat. Sauté pork medallions, turning once, for about 2 min per side; transfer to plate.
Reduce heat to medium-low and add remaining butter to skillet. Add garlic, onion and curry; cook, stirring, for about 3 min or until softened.
Pour in cream and mango chutney and bring to boil, stirring and scraping up any bits stuck to pan. Boil gently until slightly reduced, about 3 min. Return pork to skillet with any accumulated juices and turn to coat. Simmer for about 2 min or until just a hint of pink remains in pork. Serve with a dollop of yogurt and sprinkle with almonds.
Use 1/3 cup (80 mL) finely chopped shallots in place of onion and add 1/4 cup (50 mL) white wine to skillet before adding cream.
The flavour of curry paste is smoother than some curry powders and is a good choice for a quick-cooking method such as this one.
