Yeah, you might think it ain’t THAT difficult but trust me don’t let it fool you. It’s about techniques, those tiny little steps make a perfect dish or ruin it, completely.
Oh well, having that said, this half-boiled egg is also all about technique and timing, okay it’s almost ALL about timing. 🙂 In this case there are three types of boiled eggs:
- Half boiled egg
- Medium boiled egg
- Hard boiled egg
I like my egg to be medium boiled and some times hard boiled. Well the difference between is simply of “timings”.
Soft boiled egg>>>
It has a runny yolk, and the egg white is also soft. Follow the instructions as below, only note that the time when it starts to boil is only 3 minutes.
Medium boiled egg>>>
Medium boiled egg has a soft yet firm egg white and the yolk is moist but not runny. Timing for medium boiled egg is 4-5 minutes.
Hard boiled egg>>>
Hard boiled egg as the names suggests, has hard yolk and firm egg white. Last but not least, the timings for hard boiled egg is 10 minutes.
I tried to make medium boiled egg myself three times without following any advice and got nothing but a hard boiled egg. I like my egg to be soft, not runny from inside.
So, in order to make a perfect boiled egg, you need…
What you need>>>
Clock or kitchen timer
How it’s made>>>
- Get your egg out of refrigerator. For better results bring it to room temperature.
- Now fill your saucepan with water and gently place the egg . Don’t break it.
- Now bring the water to boil.
- Once it starts boiling, quickly note the time and leave the egg to cook for the time specified above.
- Once done, take the saucepan off heat and run cold water over the egg. It helps to break the shell easily.
And there you go, your perfect boiled egg. 🙂
