"The addition of curry powder to this nutritious snack or appetizer adds an anti-inflammatory boost providing fantastic flavour. Finely grating the egg yolks before mixing them with the mayo helps achieve a silky-smooth texture and decreases the need for more mayo. Cutting the eggs crosswise is a fun, modern way to serve them. Making the filling first and letting sit in the fridge for a couple of hours, gives it time for all ingredients to blend together! And then fill the egg cups."
