Curry powder might not be the ingredient you’d immediately associate with your egg salad sandwich, but according to Teri Lyn Fisher and Jenny park’s cookbook The Perfect Egg: A Fresh Take on Recipes for Morning, Noon, and Night (via Austin 360), it’s just what might pique your interest when it comes to this particular dish. Their trick to adding a nice curry tang to the egg salad is to use soft-boiled eggs instead of the hard-boiled ones and avoid the commonly used chives and mustard. Instead, they add curry powder (and a small amount of cumin) to the eggs in order to create a new, delicious flavor profile.
Of course, if you’re not into curry powder as such, you can always experiment with the various things you can substitute for curry powder. However, if you have an affinity for this delicious spice blend, you might just find that including it in the recipe allows your egg salad sandwich to soar to previously unexpected levels of deliciousness.
