Ingredients
  • 6 large eggs
  • 1tsp Dr. Oetker Violet Food Colour Gel
  • 1tbsp white wine vinegar
  • 1 avocado, peeled, destoned and mashed
  • 1tsp lime juice
  • ½tsp smoked paprika
  • 1tsp black onion seeds
Method
  • Put the eggs in a pan and cover with cold water. Bring to a simmer and cook for 8 mins. Drain and rinse.

  • While the eggs are still warm, roll them around the pan to crack the shells.

  • Put the eggs into a large zip-seal bag, add the food colouring and roll the eggs around to coat. Cool at room temperature for 10 mins, then chill in the fridge for 30 mins.

  • Add the vinegar to the bag and shake to coat. Remove the eggs, rinse in cold water and peel.

  • Halve each egg and scoop out the yolks into a bowl. Mash with a fork and stir in the avocado, lime juice and paprika. Mix until smooth and season with black pepper.

  • Put the mixture into a piping bag and pipe swirls into each hollow. Or spoon in the filling. Sprinkle with the seeds before serving.
