A few of you asked about the curry dip that I mentioned in my last post and because I am so eager to please, I thought I’d share it with you. This recipe came about because of a dip I tasted while we were in Malaysia earlier this year. We were staying on the island Pulau Langkawi and were relaxing by our hotel’s pool one day and decided to order some food and eat our lunch poolside. One of the dishes we ordered was corn fries with a curry dip. (I wish I had a picture, but I don’t.) The dip was cold and creamy with a hint of lemon and the curry flavor was light, not overpowering, so that it complimented the fries instead of being the only thing that you tasted. When I made sweet potato fries I figured we could just eat them with a ranch dip or something, but then I remembered that curry dip and how delicious it was with those corn fries. I couldn’t get it out of my head, so I decided to try and come up with a recipe. The result is embarrassingly simple! This dip is wonderful with fresh cut vegetables and would also be good on a sandwich.

You can use whatever curry you prefer. To best approximate the taste of the dip I tried in Malaysia, I used Sweet Curry from Penzeys Spices.

Curry Dip
makes 1 cup of dip

1/3 c. mayonnaise
2/3 c. sour cream
1 1/2 – 2 tsp. curry powder (according to taste)
1 1/2 tsp. lemon juice

In a medium bowl, stir together the mayonnaise, sour cream, curry powder, and lemon juice. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour to allow the flavors to fully develop.

See, didn’t I tell you? Easy!

I often make a curry dip with mayo and curry powder, delicious with carrot and cucumber sticks.

Yay! I was hoping it was a Penzeys recipe and I have this spice! Wahoo! Thanks!

It’s actually not a Penzeys recipe, but one of my creations! But I do LOVE Penzeys spices, they are such good quality!

Simple to make and delicious – my kind of dip.

I love when something is easy to make but is so yummy at the same time! I need more of those kinds of recipes!

You need to submit your recipe to Penzey’s then because they are sure to love it! I am going to try this as soon as I can go get some sour cream…

I looked and looked for a sauce to serve with homemade roti I made. This is the closes I could find. Match was perfect. Similar to the one I had at a Thai restaurant.
