Cook the Book: Curried Egg Salad with Caramelized Onion

In the introduction to this recipe for Curried Egg Salad with Caramelized Onion, Monica Bhide, author of Modern Spice, explains that although egg salad has no Indian roots, many of her Indian-American friends have adopted it into their repertoire of recipes. Eggs play a big part in Indian cooking, so the Indian penchant for traditionally American egg salad makes perfect sense.

I know that egg salad is not everyone's cup for tea. Personally, it's taken me years for me to get over my Peewee Herman-related egg salad phobias. Now I love it, and this egg salad is a perfect warm-weather lunch. Serve it over spinach or greens, on a few slices of toast, or wrapped in naan with bit of chutney.
