These are simply some of the best curried eggs I have ever made. They go great in a sandwich or as a dip.
If you are a fan of curry, then you are going to love this recipe. When you take a bite of the eggs, you are greeted with a strong hit of curry powder that is backed by creamy mayonnaise and delicious egg flavors. It is a truly amazing combination.
This recipe will make enough to feed about four people. However, this number heavily depends on whether you are serving the eggs with other foods.
You can prepare and have the curried eggs ready ahead of when you need them. Make sure you keep the eggs in the refrigerator. They should last for roughly three days in the fridge. I do not recommend freezing the eggs.
Personalizing the Recipe
There are loads of ways to tweak this recipe so that it is more to your liking. Below are just a couple of ideas on what you can do.
To make the curried eggs more creamy, I recommend adding more mayonnaise. Roughly doubling the amount will guarantee a genuinely creamy mixture. You can also try adding some sour cream instead of extra mayonnaise.
More ingredients can be added for extra flavor. However, it can end up being a tricky balance as you do not want a single taste to dominate. Something like mustard or BBQ sauce are delicious additions. I would not add anything more than a teaspoon or two to the mixture.
I recommend making some homemade mayonnaise for the best results. However, a store-bought whole egg mayonnaise is an excellent alternative if you do not have time to make it from scratch.
How to Serve Curried Eggs
There are plenty of ways you can serve these delicious curried eggs. Below are a couple of my favorite ideas that I highly recommend giving a try.
One of the most popular ways to serve these eggs is inside a sandwich. I like to keep things basic and include only some shredded lettuce. However, other ingredients such as cucumber, tomato, or even red onion will work nicely with the eggs.
The egg is excellent as a dip and goes great with some cheese, crackers, and fruit on the side. I love to dip some delicious savory biscuits into the curried eggs. For something a little healthier, you can use celery or carrot sticks.
