Curried Deviled Eggs

Deviled eggs are a relatively easy appetizer to make and many seem to love them.  Below are a number of recipes for different flavored deviled eggs, starting with my curry recipe.  Something we do sometimes is make deviled egg salad sandwiches with extra deviled eggs.  Just add a little lettuce and tomato on top of the chopped up deviled eggs.

I steamed these eggs to hard boil stage.  You can also just boil them.  When boiling, add raw eggs to a pot of cold water.  Put on high heat and bring water and eggs to a boil.  As soon as the eggs come up to a boil, turn the heat off and cover the pot, letting the eggs sit in the hot water for 12 minutes.  Then remove the eggs from the hot water and place in a bowl of ice water to cool down a little.  Now crack and peel the eggs under cold water.

For steaming eggs to a hard boil stage, place eggs in a single layer in a steamer basket set over boiling water.  Cover the steamer with a tight fitting lid and cook for 10 minutes.  Turn off the heat and let the eggs sit, covered for 5 minutes more.  

Plunge the eggs into an ice bath.  Working with one egg at a time crack the shell by gently tapping the egg on a hard surface.  Under a stream of cold running water, peel off the shell.

Let the eggs come to room temperature before halving them lengthwise for the deviled eggs.

Prep and cooking time:  1 hour to boil or steam your eggs to hard boil stage, then cool them.  10 minutes to prepare the filling for the eggs and then fill the egg halves.

Yield:  8 deviled eggs


4 hard boiled eggs cut in half lengthwise with the yolks carefully removed

1/2 teaspoon madras curry paste-curry powder will also work

2 tablespoons light mayo

1/2 teaspoon honey or agave syrup

a splash of your favorite hot sauce

2 tablespoons of finely diced sweet tart apple- such as gala

salt and pepper to taste


1.  Mash the removed yolks with a fork and then add the curry paste, mayo, honey and hot sauce. Mash and mix until smooth. Taste and then add salt and pepper to taste.  Now mix in the diced apple.

2.  Fill the egg whites.  Sprinkle with a little paprika, if you wish.  I like smoked paprika.
