With curry powder and currants, this isn't your run-of-the-mill crab and cheese dip. Serve hot or warm with water crackers, Melba toast, etc.

  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a casserole dish with nonstick spray.

Cook's Note:

Any type of curry will work but I like Madras the best.
