Make this Easter, egg-stra special!

Easter is the perfect occasion to sit down with the entire family and bond over gorgeous food. We've got some extraordinary Easter egg recipes to try out. But first, some information.


Significance of Easter Eggs

Egg, as most nutritionists will agree, can be called nature’s perfect food. During Easter, hard-boiled or sweet confectionery eggs are dyed, painted, adorned and embellished in celebration of its special symbolism. With the advent of Christianity, the symbolism of the egg changed to represent not just nature’s rebirth, but the rebirth of all humankind. Christians likened it to the tomb from which Christ rose. Ornamental egg designers believed in this symbolism and began decorating it beautifully. Even fondant was used to make tonnes of shapes and eventually beautified.

Here’s the classic Easter egg recipe for you:

Not just this, we’ve got something more for you that’ll get you all ‘egg-cited!’ Check out these fancy recipes that can be on your menu this Easter.  

Indian Scotch Eggs

It’s time for an Indian fusion, giving you a very desi way to savour the traditional scotch eggs. Spicy mutton keema mixture covering boiled eggs, crumb coated and fried golden brown, served with some fresh green chutney.

Guacamole Devilled Eggs

Hard-boiled eggs and guacamole feels like a thing that should be officially declared as a duo. Heart-healthy avocados mixed with a few veggies and then piped into eggshells. Not just yummy, but healthy too. What better breakfast than this on Easter day?

Healthy Dimer Chop

Why go for the cliché when you can get artistic? We Indians are the best when it comes to experimentation. A Bengali style scotch eggs recipe made healthier for you. This lovely Dimer Chop can also be a great snack this Easter.  Enjoy!

Marzipan Easter Eggs

Marzipan is a classic ingredient to make Easter eggs. Make dough with almond paste and castor sugar, add in your favourite flavour or a natural food colour for more fun and a more flamboyant twist. Get egg-shaped moulds that are very easily in the market, especially around Easter. All you need to do is fill them with your egg mix. Melt-in-the-mouth multi-coloured marzipan Easter eggs are ready, it’ll be a huge challenge to resist these!

Chocolate Easter Egg Pearl Cake

Again, not a very traditional recipe, but it’s going to be a regular feature on Easter (and otherwise also) once you try it. Not only is this cake decadent, but the chocolate pearls on top are almost like mini chocolate Easter eggs. A big slice of the cake and a big nap afterwards go hand-in-hand. You’re going to miss out on a masterpiece if you don’t try this one!
