Method

  • Put 6 of the eggs in a pan of cold water and bring to the boil.
  • Boil for 5 mins, then cool quickly in cold water. Carefully shell.
  • While the eggs are cooling, heat the oil, fry the onion for 5 mins, then add the carrot and cook for 10 mins more until soft.
  • Stir in the curry paste and fry for a few mins more.
  • Stir in the bread, then, when the mixture is cool, beat the remaining egg and stir in with seasoning to make a paste.
  • Divide this mixture into 6 and flatten with your hands (wetting them will make this a bit easier).
  • Use the mixture to wrap round each egg - the it will seal well as you press it together.
  • Roll in the cashews and chill until ready to cook.
  • The prepared eggs can be kept in the fridge overnight.
  • Heat oven to 190C/fan 170C/gas 5, then bake the eggs for 15-20 mins.
  • Cool for 5 mins, then carefully cut in half using a very sharp knife.
  • Serve with a bowl of mango chutney and a salad to make a main meal.
