Ingredients & Variations

EGGS: The bigger the better! Eggs taste best when they are fresh, but eggs that are a few days old tend to boil and peel better. PRO TIP: Try this method to determine if your eggs are old or new: fresh eggs will sink to the bottom of a glass of water and old eggs float. It’s that simple!

MAYONNAISE: Full fat mayonnaise carries the flavors of the curry powder perfectly. Miracle Whip and Dijon mustard are other options to make this recipe a new dish every time.

ADD-INS: Celery adds a crunchy component, but other keto add-ins are chopped toasted walnuts, sesame seeds, chopped peppers, or onions. For a sweeter, distinctly Indian-style egg salad, add whole raisins.

How to Make Curried Egg Salad

This egg salad is smooth and creamy with a few crunchy add-ins.

  1. Cook eggs.
  2. Slice eggs in half and remove the yolks.
  3. Mash the yolks. Stir in the remaining ingredients.
  4. Chop egg whites and mix into the creamy yolk mixture (as per the recipe below).

Or serve curried egg salad on keto crackers for a yummy snack or appetizer.

Tips & Tricks

  • For best results, chill curried egg salad until ready to use.
  • Make this recipe into a deviled eggs appetizer, just scoop the filling into the halved egg whites instead of chopping them!
  • Keep it in a covered container in the refrigerator for 5 days. Stir thoroughly before using again.
  • Egg salad should not be frozen as it won’t thaw well, but it’s so easy to make, simply start all over!
