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.
