Really really liked these! I used dried cranberries, cuz I didn't have raisins. Also used some parsley instead of the mint. Served with mango chutney. Love them!

This was just fantastic! I loved every bite, of sweet, spicy, curry, crunchy, juicy. Run to make this it was so delicious. I did not use the mint however as I do not like mint and instead used coriander. I also used regular dark raisins and I increased the amount of cumin. I also threw in some chopped olives just for fun.
