How to Make It
Step 1

Place the eggs in a small saucepan and cook, covered completely with water, over high heat. Bring to the boil, then cook for a further 9 minutes. Carefully tip out the boiling water from the saucepan and fill with cold water to cool the eggs. Once cool, peel the eggs and roughly chop.
