Curried Egg Salad Sandwich

My husband works in shifts… there are times when he has to be at work from 1 pm- 10 pm. Such occasions, if I am home…he eats lunch. Today is one of those days. Now, usually its a plain sandwich–cheese, cucumber, tomatoes and onion. Picky eater that he is…. boiled eggs are his favorite… so upon approval of Egg Salad Sandwich, I searched for some recipes and found Curried Egg Salad Sandwiches on Food Network. Nothing sounds delicious than Curry Powder to an Indian 😉 

Egg Salad Sandwiches are best on Rye Bread…. the combination of Rye and eggs is awesome.  But all I had was Italian White Bread…so we did with that 😉

Curried Egg Salad Sandwich
Makes: 2-4 Sandwiches (depends on how much you stuff)

Ingredients:

1/2 cup Mayonnaise (Could do 1/4 Cup Mayo and 1/4 Cup Greek yoghurt or 1/2 Cup greek yoghurt and 1 Tbsp Mayo)

1 tsp curry powder (available at any Indian Grocery and most regular Grocery stores)
Red Chilli Powder or Paprika (optional)
4 Hard Boiled eggs
Handful of Cilantro, chopped
Salt and Pepper to taste.
Slices of bread–Your Choice ( Whole Wheat, Rye, White, Pita Bread, Pumpernickel)
Tomatoes and Onions, Sliced
Lettuce of your choice (I used Romaine)

Procedure:

1. Boil Eggs, shell, and cut into small pieces.

2. In a bowl, Mix Mayo (greek yoghurt if using), curry powder, red chilli powder, cilantro, salt and pepper. Add the chopped eggs, and mix. Using a fork to mix, will also help mash the yolks and eggs a little. 

3. Toast your bread slightly. If you like well done toast sandwich–go ahead and toast it completely

4. Layer with Lettuce, Egg Salad, Onion, Tomatoes. Enjoy!

   
This is a very flexible recipe…you could change it as per your taste. Usually Egg Salad has Dijon mustard instead of Curry Powder. To make it healthier, you could replace the mayo with yoghurt. Remove the yolks and add Avocados instead. Add anything you want!! Want to avoid the bread… chop the onion, tomatoes, and lettuce and mix it in…Yummy Salad!!

Hope you enjoy it as much as we did….
