    i didnt have curry so i used cumin and it was great!!
    I love this dip! It is the best when served with Paula's Phyllo Wrapped Asparagus. I did not read the other reviews, only saw that the recipe only has 4 stars. That is just wrong - I could eat this dip on everything!! But I guess you have to love curry the way I do!
    I'm a fan of this dip. Like the previous reviewer, I used a combination of light mayo and sour cream (sometimes I think Paula's recipes are a little too heavy on the mayo), and it turned out really well - spicy, but not overwhelming. Great for crudites.
    I've made this with mayo and to make a lower cal recipe I've substituted low fat sour cream or low-fat Greek yogurt. The trick to getting the flavors to pop is to make it the day before so the curry powder has time to melt into your base. If using fat-free Greek yogurt, I usually mix the powder in a teaspoon of mayo and then blend it into the yogurt the following day; the fat helps the curry powder blend much better. Also if using sour cream or yogurt I add a pinch of salt. Good stuff!
    My girlfriends & I love this dip. I changed the spice to Garam Masala since it has a little more kick & I also use lowfat Greek yogurt instead of mayo.
    Alot of ingredients do not make a great dip and this is the perfect example, delicious and sophisticated, it is a real gem of a recipe!
    Great dip for artichokes. A splash of hot sauce really zings it up. Perfect for any vegetable. Makes a great sauce for chicken or shrimp salad, too.
    i dont care if this is an old recipe!! it's still great. I used this along side the phyllo wrapped asparagus and it was amazing!!
    My familyadoredthis dip that I sereved during a recent gathering. My only "down" regardin it is that when I first fixed it, my husband and I both disliked it. It hadn't chilled yt, so we placed it in the fridge to chill. We left it there for 2 days, and "something" happened to make it so much better tasting. I hope it doesn't always have to chill for 2 days.
    This dip was so easy to make with a perfect accent for vegetables, it was a hit at our table.
    I got a ton of compliments on this dip. So unexpected and easy to make.
    What a big hit this recipe is. All of my friends and family just love it.
    I altered the recipe a bit using half mayo and half sour cream to give it a lighter feeling, I got that idea from one of her other dips. Anyways, it was a hit at a party I went to, good flavor, a little spice to beat the regular boring dip.
    We loved this! The fresh lemon juice in this gives it a lift. Thanks Paula!
    I served this at a party last night and all the ?curry? lovers raved over it. I thinned what was left with a little milk and drizzled it over my salad today. What a nice twist for salad dressing. Thank you Paula!
    I made this with light miracle whip and it was delicious! I think that the tang added a lot of flavor to the dip and everyone loved it!
    Well, perhaps this recipe is simplistic, but it's the first time I've heard of it and it was really really good! I actually served it along side the phyllo wrapped asparagus and received rave reviews. I used the leftover dip with sandwiches the next day. This was really easy and fast to whip together!
    This was good with veggies - I also liked it with Salmon Croquettes.
    I have to agree with David, her recipes are not the same anymore. They are more like another show which I will not mention. I used to enjoy Paula's show, her down-home recipes reminded me of my childhood. Maybe she has gotten too busy or she has no interest in being like the person she was, the motherly type who was teaching you the old way to cook like our mothers and grandmothers used to cook, or just maybe the was an act and this is the way she really is. I will say that the chefography show about her and her background was nothing like what she wrote in the front of one of her cookbooks that I have. One of the stories was not the true. I used to enjoy the homely feeling I got when I watched her shows and watched each time it was on but now I only watch a few times a month if that because her shows she seems so snobbish. I have to say that most of the recipes I have tried since her new season of shows started are awful.
    I love you Paula.....but this recipe has been around for many years and is old hat. You did a real pretty presentation, so that deserved an extra star, but how about some new and exciting dips in the future?
    I really disagree with the previous poster. I actually appreciated this recipe, and went to look it up. It is a challenge for me to get my SO to eat veggies, and a new dip is always appreciated. If this was really semi-ho, Paula would have bought a pre-made dip and "dolled it up."
    Is it just me or is Paula morphing into Sandra Lee? Seems like in this new season she doesn't really even cook, much less offer recipes that would be interesting to serious cooks. This is an example of what I'm talking about. Either she's run out of interesting recipes or she's too busy running around being famous to be bothered to develop any. A poor showing from my former favorite Food Network Star.
