I found this recipe in one of my TOH cookbooks several years ago. I have made it many times and always get asked for the recipe. I substitute the sour cream for greek yogurt and use a little more curry powder. I also add a handful of dried cranberries. To make it a little bit on the "lighter" side, I serve it in romaine lettuce cups or on top of a good salad.
