{Simple and Easy} Curried Egg Tea Sandwiches Recipe

With a cup of tea, there are very few things I usually crave for. Little sandwiches top the list any day. The best part is that they are so easy to put together. All I need to make sure is that the filling is readily made.

Not just with tea, there might be days when you will not have time to make a leisurely sit down breakfast or a sumptuous lunch. These work very well for such busy times too. The boiled egg and mayonniase are the star ingredients in today's recipe - Curried Egg Tea Sandwiches. Orange zest + juice add the required zing and the slight note of heat is from spice powder. Oh-So-Delicious!


..a perfect accompaniment for that hot piping cup of tea.
A sandwich a day can definitely keep anybody's hungry cravings at bay! :-)

the curried egg filling serves as a great salad as well!

If I were you, I would slather a copious of egg filling on my bread slice! Yum.

{Recipe} Curried Egg Tea Sandwiches

Adapted from Food and Wine
Preparation Time: 20 mins
Time to Assemble: 15 mins


10 slices of sandwich bread (I used white)
4 eggs, at room temperature
1/4 tsp finely grated orange zest (optional)
1/2 tbsp freshly squeezed orange juice
1/4 tsp curry powder (or instead use cumin/coriander powder)
few sprigs of cilantro
1/4 cup mayonnaise
salt and pepper to taste


1. Fool-proof method for perfectly boiled eggs in minutes - Put the eggs in a saucepan filled 3/4th with water and little salt. Bring to a vigorous boil. Cover and let stand for 10-15 minutes. Drain the eggs and cool under running water. Lightly crack the shells and peel. Transfer them into a bowl and cool a bit.

2. Finely chop the eggs and add the orange zest + orange juice + cilantro along with the curry powder (or cumin/coriander powder if using) and mayonnaise. Season with salt and pepper and mash with a fork.

3. Trim off the brown crusts from bread (if you like the edges, let them be) and spread egg filling on one side. Top with the another slice of bread and cut each sandwich in half. Transfer to a platter and Serve. You really don't need any accompaniment for these sandwiches and taste best with a hot piping cuppa of tea.

Aren't they tempting enough to be made some right away..
