Curried Egg Celery Salad



One of the first dish that my mother taught me was egg sandwiches. She taught me how to peel eggs, mashed them and mixed them up with creamy mayo seasoned with salt and pepper.

When I was in university, a uni mate looked at me in amazement when I asked her what was curried egg. You see, she was having some and I asked what it was. I had a taste and was hooked. Who would have thought that mixing some curry powder to a simple egg mayo would change the dish?

I could never find or could anyone tell me where does curried egg come from? Is it an Aussie thing? Nevertheless, it is a good light meal for a quick dinner. I paired it with some crunchy celery for that added texture.

Curried Egg Celery Salad
4 eggs hardboiled
2 tablespoon of low fat mayo
1 tsp of curry powder
salt and pepper
few stalks of celery (from the heart of celery) chopped

Mashed eggs and mix it with mayo, curry powder, seasoning and celery. Serve with some salad leaves, cherry tomatoes and avocado for a light meal or in between fluffy bread. I had some stuffed capsicum with tuna and couscous.

And I learnt curried eggs from you (one of your earlier posts) ...... it was yummy! Arianna calls it the Modern Egg Mayo. Happy New Year, Daphne! Finally got back online after settling the kids back to their new school term. Can't wait to start blogging again!

You know, I've never really loved egg salad but maybe that's because I've never had it with curry in it! Sounds great.

I do like whole eggs in curry, so I think this mayo rendition is similar in taste.

Oh really? Then, I will have to give this a try since I want to know the difference. :)

looks really tasty, and it will definitely make a great sandwich filling too.

i would hv thought cooking the egg in curries if i never read the recipe. i like you bring a new flavour to the usual mayonnaise. Just made some rolls last week and went with mayonnaise, next time i shall try putting a pinch of curry powder there.

Love curry with my eggs but never done it in a salad version before. This would be perfect to have on hand for lunch during the week

When I was in US a few months ago, I tried a curried egg sandwich which really disappointed me. Yours look really moist and creamy. I shall remember this one.
