Devilled eggs

Makes 24

12 organic free-range eggs

1/3 cup whole-egg mayonnaise

2 tsp curry powder

2 tbsp chives, finely chopped

white pepper

sea salt flakes

1 Place eggs in a heavy-based saucepan. Cover with cold salted water; bring to the boil over a medium-high heat, stirring gently (this will centre the yolk). Reduce heat to medium and simmer for 10 minutes. Drain and run cold water over eggs. Stand for 10 minutes to cool. Remove shells.

2 Cut eggs in half, lengthways. Scoop yolk from eggs into a bowl and mash. Add mayonnaise, curry powder and chives. Season with salt and pepper. Stir until well combined. Spoon mixture into a piping bag fitted with a star nozzle. Pipe mixture into eggs. Sprinkle with sea salt. Serve.
