This recipe is adapted from “Feeding the Flock” published by Corinth Baptist Church in Monroe, North Carolina in 2001. There are endless varieties of new and old deviled egg recipes, but this one is a little different since it uses curry powder. I am a huge fan of curry powder and related spices, and this goes very well with the eggs to add a slightly different twist on an old classic. I think almost everybody loves deviled eggs, so you know these will be a hit at any party or holiday dinner!
Ingredients for 32 Deviled-Eggs
- 16 hard-boiled eggs
- 1/2 c. sour cream
- 2 Tbsp. lemon juice
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 1/2 tsp. paprika
- 1/2 tsp. ground mustard
- 1/2 tsp. curry powder
- 1/2 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
- Boil eggs, cool, peel, and cut eggs in half lengthwise. (see notes below for boiling eggs)
- Remove the yolks; set whites aside.
- In a bowl, mash yolks, add remaining ingredients and mix well.
- Spoon into egg whites. Chill until served.
These deviled eggs were as easy to make as any other deviled egg, and the lemon and curry add a bit of interest without going overboard. If you don’t have a particular way you like to boil your eggs, I always use the same method and it works every time:
- Place eggs in a deep pan with a lid and cover with 1-2 inches of cold water
- Put the pan on high heat until it comes to a rolling boil
- Turn heat source completely off but do not remove pan, put lid on and leave for 12 minutes
- Immediately pour out as much hot water as you can without dropping the eggs, and run cold water in the pan for 2-3 minutes or until you can handle the eggs without burning your hands
- Peel eggs under running water
This method works every time to get a hard-boiled egg that is not overcooked and rubbery. If you like soft-boiled eggs, you can experiment with less time, maybe starting at 8 minutes instead of 12. These deviled eggs were delicious and I will certainly be making them again.
