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]

Was intrigued with the photos of these eggs & had to try my hand at them as well! As with other reviewers, I totally enjoyed making them & another time will toy around with various intensities of color as well as other colors! You have a real keeper of a recipe here! Thanks for sharing it! [Tagged & made in Please Review My Recipe]

These are so pretty and unique and fun to make. I brewed mine with just tea bags (1 for each egg) in a pot just big enough for a half dozen to really intensify the color. I brewed for 3 hours and got a nice rich brown. I plan on taking these to the family reunion next week brewing some in tea, and others brewed in different colored dyes. Thanks for sharing a keeper recipe! :)
