Bombay Cheese Ball Platter

Recipe By Lisa VanWilliams
This is a wonderful platter that's great for anytime of the year. Seasonal fruits can be used, it looks wonderful, and all the flavors blend together for a perfectly exotic tasting treat. My cousin Linda first introduced me to this at our Aunt's Christmas Eve party and she told me she would get this platter made for her at a natural foods store way to far from me. I was determined to recreate the secret recipe. I called the store but they would not share the exact recipe with me, but gave me the basic components. I tried it out today and S-U-C-C-E-S-S!  I had some friends over for a swim and we snacked on this all morning long. Nothing was left.

Ingredients for Cheese Ball:
Mascarpone
Cream Cheese
Goats Milk Cheddar Cheese (shredded)

Toppings:
Curry powder (1 teaspoon)
Mango Chutney
Shredded/flakedCoconut
Chopped Pecans
Scallions diced finely
Cranberries
Golden Raisins

Seasonal Fruit:
Cherries
Pears
Dried apricots

Directions: Mix together the cream cheese, mascarpone, and goat cheese and let it chill for bit.



After chilled, mold into a flat circle. Top with curry powder at least a teaspoon full or more to cover all the cheese evenly.


Then coat the cheese with mango chutney evenly.


Sprinkle with coconut, pecans, scallions, cranberries, and raisins.



Then surround the cheese ball with fresh fruit of your choice. Serve this was a plate of assorted crackers. Enjoy! It's fabulous.
