  • 4 Hard boiled eggs
  • 2-3 tablespoon Mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon Mustard
  • 4 tablespoon Onion finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon Celery Stalk
  • 2 tablespoon Cilantro or Parsley finely chopped
  • ½ tablespoon Lime Juice
  • ½ teaspoon Pepper powder
  • ½ teaspoon Red Chilli flakes as required
  • Salt to taste


  • Hard boil eggs for 12 minutes and turn off the stove. Cover with ice cold water and keep it aside for few minutes. Tap , break and peel the egg shell. You can chill eggs , before using in the recipe.
  • Chop Eggs and transfer into a salad mixing bowl.
  • Now finely chop onion , celery , parsley or cilantro and any other herbs ,if using.
  • Season eggs with salt and pepper powder.
  • Add finely chopped onions and herbs into mixing bowl.
  • Now add mayonnaise, dijon mustard and chilli flakes.

  • A good quality, full fat mayonnaise works well here . Though , you can use and flavored mayonnaise of your choice . My personal favorite is Garlic Flavored Mayonnaise to make this classic egg salad
