Deviled Eggs Recipe Method
Gently add the eggs to a large saucepan half filled with water and add a teaspoon of vinegar. The vinegar will help to stop the egg whites leaking into the water if any shells crack while cooking.
Bring the water to boil, remove from the heat, cover the pan with a lid and let the eggs sit in the water for 15 minutes. Then drain the water from the pan and run cold water over the eggs for several minutes. Crack the eggs slightly to make it easy to peel the shells and then let the eggs sit in icy cold water for 5 minutes.
Shell the head-boiled eggs and then cut lengthwise in perfect halves. Scoop out the yolks into a bowl leaving the white halves as empty cups that you will later fill.
Mash the egg yolks with a fork and blend in the mayonnaise, minced green onion and curry powder; mix well. Season the yolk mixture with sea salt and pepper according to taste.
Spoon or pipe the filling into the egg white halves dividing the mixture equally so that so that you create a slightly raised mound. Deviled eggs benefit from being made a few hours in advance of serving and kept in the refrigerator to allow the full flavors to develop.
When ready to serve, arrange eggs on a platter and garnish with minced fresh cilantro (coriander).

It's not only tasty but healthful!
Using it is a minor way of reversing some of the damage done by the First Agricultural Revolution. That was a wonderful boon for human civilization, but it has taken a terrible health toll on us as individuals.
When we switched from eating the kinds of foods our prehistoric forager ancestors ate, we caused ourselves to begin to suffer from all the diseases of civilization including coronary heart disease (which is the biggest killer in the world today), type 2 diabetes, obesity, hypertension, some cancers, and others.
By returning to eating (and moving) more like our prehistoric ancestors, we can mitigate all the suffering and premature death due to the diseases of civilization.
Eggs are natural foods packed with healthful fats and protein. So you are being really kind to yourself whenever you use this deviled eggs recipe and others like it.
