Curried deviled eggs are spicy and seasoned with curry powder, garam masala and chili powder. Great snack, a starter and a side dish for any occasion!
Easter is just around the corner and it is always associated with eggs. Kid's friendly deviled eggs sounded like a great recipe to share. This is an easy recipe to involve kids in the preparation.
I am not a fan of eggs and definitely not deviled eggs unless the yolk mixture is well seasoned. Hence spicy, curried deviled eggs. I season it with hot Madras curry powder just like I do with egg salad. Adjust the spice level to taste.
What are Deviled Eggs?
Deviled eggs are hard boiled eggs stuffed with seasoned egg yolks. These eggs are easy to prepare and a great recipe to prepare with kids. To prepare the eggs, cut hard boiled eggs in half, scoop out the yolk, season with spices and mayonnaise, and filled back into whites. Seasoning for classic deviled eggs is mayonnaise, mustard and black pepper. However, for a unique flavor, play with the basic seasoning ingredients.
Today's recipe is one such recipe. Indian spices such as curry powder and garam masala are spicy hot. Thus are great to obtain a spicy and unique flavor. Serve deviled eggs as a starter, side dish or even as a snack.
