Leftover Easter eggs become a quick and satisfying meal, good with rice. Prep and Cook Time: about 1 hour. Notes: Garam masala, an Indian spice blend, is available in the spice section of well-stocked grocery stores and at South Asian markets. To hard-cook eggs: Put 6 eggs in a medium saucepan. Cover with cold water by 1 in. Bring to a boil over high heat. Cover, remove from heat, and let sit 14 minutes. Transfer eggs to an ice bath and let cool at least 10 minutes. When ready to peel, dip in hot water for 10 seconds to loosen shell. Remove and discard shell.
