Makes 12

6 eggs

2 Tbs good quality mayonnaise



2 tsp parsley, finely chopped

2 tsp celery, finely chopped

1 tsp chives, finely chopped

salt and pepper

1 tsp curry powder


Three-quarter fill a saucepan with salted water. Bring to a boil then add the eggs and cook for five minutes. Pour off the water and run plenty of cold water over the eggs to stop them cooking.


Shell the eggs and cut in half length-wise. Carefully remove the yolks to a bowl.


Add the remaining ingredients and mash together well. Spoon or use a piping bag to put the mixture back into the cavity. Add extra snipped chives to garnish.
