    Impress your friends with these beautiful spiced hard boiled eggs! Feel free to change or substitute ingredients depending on what is available, and on desired intensity of color. With food coloring this should work as well, but I did not try it!

      Very impressive! Oh these are so fun to make and turn out so nicely! Worried for nothing about what they would taste like or if the family would like them as they gobbled them right up. And to my delight the eggs were nice and tender; the long low simmer did Not overcook them. I did work with what we had on hand using salt, bay leaves, fresh ginger, cumin, coriander seeds and turmeric, would love to try with some red onion as I think the red would be quite pretty. Did not use guava leaves as I have never seen them here even in the specialty stores. You know I will be making these again. Thanks so much for the post.

      I just had to try this recipe!
      I don't know why but I just had to give this recipe a go, and I am so glad I did!!!! These eggs look so fantastic!
      I made as written ohhhh...except for the guava leaf, I did not have any, but followed everything else as written.
      They turned out so amazing, much to my suprise, and taste wonderful. I served with salad & your Micronesian Coconut Chicken Curry recipe.
      They looked so spectacular on the plate with the salad.
      Thanks awalde, such a wonderful yet different recipe.

      These were fantastic! I was worried they wouldn't turn out, but they were perfect! I used the lemongrass instead of ginger, and I used the red onion peel. I didn't use the guava leaves as they are unavailable here. The kids were very impressed with them, and want me to make them again with food dye tomorrow! My sister suggested the food dye ones would look great in summer salads. Thankyou for sharing this fantastic recipe! [Made for PRMR]
