This is so delicious! The flavours are very exotic tangy sweet and spicy all in one bite! I used mango chutney roatsed my almonds before rolling and added a pinch of salt to recipe. Note: I wouldn't say you have to love curry to enjoy this cheese ball however I would say you have to have an appreciation for ethnic flavours so if you or your guests don't enjoy going out of their comfort zone then I wouldn't recomend this cheese ball.

All I found for chutney was mango I didn't add all that was called for. I found it too sweet. We all thought it was okay but not great. It is also very soft. Read More

Really tasty. You can make with light cream cheese. We tried it with a spicy mango chutney so it had a little zip. Easy to make. Looks good but I might do it as a "cheese log" instead so it's easier to eat with a group. Read More

This is great similar to one that sells at cheese store for 18.75/pound. Instead of almonds I used chopped cashews added some chopped dried apricot shredded coconut and some sauted in water raisins (to plump and soften them). Was a hit...will make again. Read More

Delicious and easy. A big hit. A little soft (even after refrigeration) to roll into a ball. I served in a bowl and sprinkled with toasted almonds. Read More

Very good and quite easy as well. I made a log rather than a ball and was quite pleased. Next time I will cut the recipe in half as it is a bit more than my family needs. Read More

I was really excited to make this as it sounded great and a bit unusual. However it did not turn out well. Read More

I really liked this but it may have been too exotic for the guests at the party I brought it to because it was far from gone at the end of the night. Read More
