Curry Mango Dip

With New Year's just around the corner...here's an appetizer dish that might just fit into your menu plan.  It's great to take along to a party...or to serve before an Asian style meal.  It was given to me by a friend a few years ago...and I have served it on numerous occasions.  It's Oriental...it's different...and it's good.


Ingredients:

  • 250 ml / 8 oz. light cream cheese
  • 2 Tablespoons sour cream
  • 1 tablespoon curry powder
  • 2/3 cups mango chutney
  • 1/3 cup chopped green onions
  • 1/3 cup golden raisins
  • 1/3 cup pecans, chopped

Method:
  1. Mix cream cheese, sour cream and curry powder together until well blended.  
  2. Spread over bottom of serving dish.
  3. Spread mango chutney over cream cheese mixture.
  4. Combine green onions, raisins and chopped pecans and sprinkle over chutney.
  5. Serve with crackers.
Note ~ Mango chutney can be found in the 'Asian foods' section at the grocery store.

    1. I could have used this one on boxing day, when we ordered in "chinese food". I appreciate that you are posting recipes to keep with the season. Keep those appetizer recipes coming - even the old standby recipes are sometimes new to some people or have a slightly different twist to them than how we have been making them.

    2. Not all crackers are equal. Which cracker or what type of cracker do you use with this dip?

      Is the curry powder the curry powder that's found with the usual spices in a grocery store?

      Please respond. Going to use this recipe for New Year's Eve. Thank you.

    3. pj...regular curry powder is just fine. As for the crackers...I used rice crackers (as pictured on the photo). But feel free to serve this dip with chips or an assortment of crackers.
