I could eat them in a million different ways and never be bored. This Green Chilli Avocado Egg Salad is just one of the many way in which I love to eat eggs.

Green Chilli Avocado Egg Salad

To me, nothing comes close to the perfection of eggs. Nutritionally dense, satisfying and so so so versatile. If you have eggs in the house, you have a meal that people won’t turn their noses up at. 

We only eat Free Range eggs at home and I have only recently experienced the deliciousness that is Clarence Court eggs. If you are an Egg lover, nothing compares to that vibrant creamy silky egg yolk. Even my husband is obsessed. They are really rather special. 

Combine the creaminess of half boiled eggs with a creamy avocado and you have the most delicious salad. I’m all for egg mayonnaise. It can be seriously good but in my opinion this is just as flavourful. 

Weirdly egg mayonnaise sandwiches remind me of death. Hear me out before you run. I was once asked by a neighbour to make sandwiches when her daughter had passed away. Obviously she isn’t indian or South Asian.  I mean..imagine the outrage of being served egg sandwiches at a bereavement. Anyway, I didn’t have much time to do make said sandwiches and the easiest thing to make was egg mayonnaise butties. 

I made them without much thought and then got a message from a chef who happened to be there, saying that they were the best egg mayonnaise sandwiches he had ever eaten. I was quite surprised to be honest and then i thought about egg mayo sandwiches out in the world of the supermarkets. Soggy/stale bread, claggy egg, wilted dying cress.. of course he loved mine. Those sandwiches are  like some form of punishment. 

This is my grown up and healthier version of egg mayonnaise which I sometimes have in the morning in between 2 slices of thick bread or on a toasted bagel.

Sometimes I have the eggs with this avocado green chutney instead and it is just as yummy.

Just to show you how much I love eggs, here are some other egg recipes on the site:

South Indian Style Egg Curry

Aubergine, Egg and Tahini Wrap – Sabih

Healthy Egg Curry with Potatoes and Peas

Turkish Cilbir – Poached Eggs in Yoghurt

Middle Eastern Shakshuka with Burrata or Feta

Please let me know if you try this recipe and tell me if you as obsessed with eggs as I am. P.s. I know some of you are already from my Instagram DMs!
