  • 1 Beetroot , diced with skin
  • 1 cups Water
  • 2 teaspoon Vinegar
  • 4 Eggs Hard Boiled , peeled


  • Boil the beetroot in water for minutes till the liquid reaches a deep pink colour, about 15-20 minutes.
  • Add vinegar, remove from flame and let it cool.
  • Add eggs, till they are completely covered by the liquid. Let them stand in the mixture for an hour or till they are stained pink half
  • Remove with a slotted spoon and use


Use your judgement while coloring the eggs. Timing vary slightly based on the ingredients used. The taste of the eggs did not change when I tried, but other ingredients such as turmeric fun while coloring these by painting them with a brush or making splatters using a toothbrush. So be creative! Don't just try this during Easter. This is a great way to wow your guests on other occasions as well!
