Spicy Egg Salad Sandwich

It’s been a minute since I posted a recipe but I am coming to you with my spicy take on a egg salad sandwich. As a vegetarian who eats eggs, I am often disappointed with this famous deli style sandwich. Most egg salad sandwiches have A LOT of mayo and lack any serious flavor. So, for your next picnic, try these sandwiches to elevate your egg salad game.

Salad Ingredients

1 carrot grated

1/2 C of colorful sweet peppers

Three hard-boiled eggs

1/4 C of Greek Yogurt

2 tablespoons chopped of cilantro

1 Tsp of Dijon mustard

For Tempering

1 Thai chili finely chopped

1 Tbs sesame oil

1 Tsp cumin seeds

2 tbs of onions

1 Tsp of Garam masala

1/2 turmeric


  • Chop the boiled eggs into bite size pieces.

  • In a bowl, add all the salad ingredients and mix together.

  • In a small fry pan or kadai, on medium heat, add a tablespoon of oil. Let the oil heat (20-30 seconds).

  • Add the cumin seeds. Once the seeds are toasted (~30 seconds), add the chilies, garam masala, and turmeric.

  • The spices will release an aroma and that is how you know it is ready. This is quick so don’t let the spices burn!

  • Finally add the onions and sauté everything for 2 minutes.

  • Add this to the salad and combine everything together.

  • Serve with toasted bread or as wraps!
