This delicious dip is so versatile. Serve it with your favorite crackers and chips, as part of your party veggie tray, or even use it as a spread for wraps and sandwiches.


What does Curry powder taste like?

Curry powder is a blend of spices often used in Indian and South Asian cuisine. It has a warm, earthy taste with just a touch of heat from pepper. Curry powder usually includes turmeric, cumin, ginger, and black pepper. You might also taste garlic and cinnamon.

This dip recipe balances the earthy notes of the curry powder nicely with sweet apricot preserves, and the softened cream cheese makes this a lovely thick and creamy dip.

Sweet Curry Dip Ingredients

Gather the following ingredients to make this tasty curry dip:

8 ounces cream cheese, softened to room temperature

½ cup apricot preserves

2 teaspoons yellow curry powder

¼ teaspoon dry mustard

⅓ cup diced onion

⅓ cup chopped pecan pieces

How to make Curry Dip

This curry appetizer is so easy to make, I almost feel silly putting it into a recipe!

Grab a medium mixing bowl and add all the ingredients listed above. Mix them all together with a rubber spatula, hand mixer or stand mixer. The key to getting everything well combined is using room temperature cream cheese. It’s worth taking the extra time to make sure it’s easy to spread.

Put the curry spread into a serving dish and refrigerate the dip for a minimum of two hours. It’s best if you can chill it overnight so the flavors deepen.

Remove it from the fridge about 30 minutes before serving so it’s creamy and easy to dip. Enjoy with your favorite snacks!
