We’ve been on a bit of a deviled eggs kick here in the Cook Lisa Cook house as the eggs are a super simple delicious, ready to grab bite, for a meal or a snack. They’re also a nice treat along with our Chipotle Stuffed Mushrooms to enjoy with a drink on these hot summer afternoons when we’re kicking back and relaxing on our dock doing nothing but looking out at the water and listening to nature. We’ve continued to enjoy the Sriracha Deviled Eggs but this week decided to change things up a bit and made some awesome Curried Deviled Eggs. Again, super simple to make and ready to eat at a moment’s notice.
- 12 eggs
- 4 TBS. mayonnaise
- 2 tsp. hot Jamaican curry powder, plus extra for dusting at finish
- 2 TBS. mango chutney, minced finely if chunky
- 1/4 tsp. fresh ground pepper
- Himalayan salt to taste
In a large pot, bring water to a boil. Carefully add the eggs to the pot and bring the water back to a full boil. Allow the eggs to boil for 30 seconds. Cover tightly and reduce heat to low so that it’s just at a simmer. Cook for 11 minutes. Using a large slotted spoon, remove the eggs from the hot water and place in a bowl of ice water. Allow the eggs to cool for at least 15 minutes before peeling under cool running water.
Once the eggs are peeled, slice in half and remove the yolks to a bowl and place the hollowed out whites on a platter. Using the tines of a fork, mash the yolks. Add in the mayonnaise, curry powder, mango chutney and pepper. Combine until smooth and add salt to taste. Place the yolk mixture in a piping bag or Ziploc bag fitted with a star or round piping tip. Fill each egg white with the yolk mixture. Dust with curry powder. Serve cold.
