These deviled eggs are quite addictive and you wouldn’t easily guess the secret ingredient (honey). Despite it’s name, this isn’t a classic Parsi recipe. It was found in a book published in Bombay in the 1940’s under the mysterious heading “Italian Eggs”. These deviled eggs, more Parsi then Italian, have all the virtues of their genre plus something else; They’re quite sophisticated with zingy flavors that go well with contemporary foods. They're great for picnics and also with drinks before an Indian flavored or spicy meal. Source: unknown

  • ·
    6 large eggs, hard cooked
  • ·
    1 1/2 tsp. fresh lime juice, or more to taste
  • ·
    1 tsp. honey
  • ·
    1/4 tsp. salt or to taste
  • ·
    1/2 jalapeno pepper, seeded and minced

How to Make Parsi Deviled Eggs

Step-by-Step

  1. Shell eggs, cut in half lengthwise and put yolks in small bowl. Set egg whites aside. add all remaining ingredients except mayonnaise to the yolks, mashing well with a fork. Be sure the honey is well distributed. Stir in mayonnaise and taste for lime and salt. Spoon mixture into egg whites, cover and refrigerate for at least 2 hours or overnight. Let come to room temperature before serving.
  2. To hard cook eggs, set them in a pan just big enough to hold them, then cover with water. Slowly bring water to a boil. Cover pan and remove from heat. Let eggs sit in pan for 14 minutes. For picture perfect eggs,use the French trick Julia Child used and Jacques Pepin favors; Plunge eggs into a bowl of ice water and let them sit for 20 minutes. No green rings around the yolks, and the eggs will be a cinch to peel. It’s important to let deviled eggs season a bit for best flavor. Two hours will do it, but overnight is better. You can play with the seasonings, using more butter, lime and/or jalapeno as you like.
  3. Note; I use parsley whenever cilantro is called for, as I'm not fond of cilantro. source unknown
