Rated 5.0 based on 3 customer reviews


  • 2 cups water
  • cooking spray
  • 8 large eggs
  • ¼ cup mayonnaise
  • 2 large green onions, minced
  • 1 tablespoon minced cilantro
  • 1 tablespoon curry powder
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • salt and ground black pepper to taste


For best results, we recommend using:


  1. Spray a 7-inch metal cake pan with cooking spray. Crack eggs into pan.
  2. Pour water into the inner steel pot of a pressure cooker. Place trivet in pot and pan with eggs on top of trivet.
  3. Lock pressure cooker lid in place and set steam vent handle to Sealing. Select Egg and cook on High Pressure for 5 minutes. Let pressure release naturally for 5 minutes, then turn steam vent handle to Venting to quick-release remaining pressure. Remove pan with eggs and pour off any water that's accumulated on eggs.
  4. Run a knife around the edges of the pan to loosen eggs. Slide egg loaf out of pan onto a cutting board and chop eggs into small pieces.
  5. Stir chopped eggs, mayonnaise, green onion, cilantro, curry powder, Dijon mustard, salt, and ground black pepper together in a bowl. Adjust seasoning as desired.
Mealthy tip:

With its complex and deep flavors, curry powder is an unsung spice hero of your kitchen pantry for many reasons. Curry powder can include a blend of turmeric, coriander seeds, cumin seeds, dried chillies, black pepper, fenugreek seeds, mustard seeds, cinnamon, cardamom, cloves, nutmeg, peppercorns, and bay leaves, and each of these spices or seeds comes packed with healthy goodness that can help strengthen your bones, reduce inflammation, and aid in digestion.

I tried the curried deviled egg recipe on this website, but this curried egg salad is my absolute favorite. I had it with bacon and took to work for lunch. Cooking eggs this way is beyond easy.

Cooking eggs this way is genius, why did I not think of this earlier? I am making eggs for all of my salads and meals now. The recipe was also not bad. The curry flavor, surprisingly, was really good.

I LOVE the curried egg salad from my local deli and have always wanted to try making my own at home. Peeling eggs can be SUCH a pain, but when cooked in the MultiPot they truly slip right off. It's absurdly easy! This recipe is delish... I eat it on toasted bread with arugula.
