12 large eggs
1/4 cup mayonnaise (preferably homemade!)
1 jalapeno pepper (seeded and chopped)
1 tablespoon ground cumin
1 tablespoon mustard
1 teaspoon cayenne pepper (Lal mirch)
Paprika and salt to taste
Cilantro (finely chopped)
Place eggs in a saucepan of cold water with a splash of vinegar (this is to prevent egg whites from escaping if there is a crack in any of the eggs.) Bring to boil and then cook (at boil) for 10 minutes. Remove saucepan from heat and run cold water over eggs. Let sit in cold water until cooled.
Once cold, peel and then cut in half, lengthwise. Carefully scoop out the yolks and mash up in a bowl with the mayonnaise, jalapeno pepper, cumin, mustard and cayenne pepper. Fill egg whites with mixture, add paprika and salt to taste and garnish with cilantro (optional).
