HOW TO PREPARE CURRIED PUMPKIN DEVILED EGGS
Start by coloring eggs. For this, mix hot water, vinegar, and both yellow and red food coloring in a bowl.
Then, twine hard-boiled eggs like a pumpkin (8 wraps) and place them into the bowl, making sure they are completely submerged.
Let them rest into that mixture for 10-14 minutes. Next, remove them with a slotted spoon, pat dry with paper tower, and gently cut-off twine.
On a cutting board, cut each egg in half (make sure to slice a flat bottom for each half), place yolks in a separate bowl, and prepare filling.
To prepare filling, mash yolks with a fork and stir in mayo, mustard, yellow curry powder, vinegar, salt, sugar, and fresh thyme leaves.
Pipe filling into the pumpkin-like egg shells and garnish as desired. I used rosemary leaves (to resemble pumpkin stalks) and also a dash of curry.
Serve these curried deviled eggs chilled and enjoy!
Could any appetizer be easier and more festive than that?
Facts about Deviled Eggs
Deviled eggs (or devilled eggs, stuffed eggs, dressed eggs, or Russian egg) consists of shelled, boiled eggs that are then sliced in half, and filled with a creamy paste.
Make the paste from mashed egg yolks mixed with mayonnaise, mustard, and other ingredients.
Although popular in America, the birthplace of deviled eggs is Italy, believe it or not!
The origin goes far back as ancient Rome. As you can see, it's an everlasting (fool-proof) recipe!
Ours has a more festive holiday look, and curry for a super delish kick.
