Perfect Soft Boiled Eggs Recipe in Urdu
- Bring the water to a rapid boil.
Add salt and keep it at a rapid boil.
Prick the bottom (wider end) of the egg with an egg pricker.
Immerse in the boiling water and boil for exactly 5 minutes.
Dash in cold water, crack and enjoy.
Note: To achieve the perfect soft-boiled eggs (with the yolk soft and the white firm), you must boil them for exactly 5 minutes (perfect for an elevation of 1100 ft / 330 meters). If you live nearer sea level, decrease the boiling time. If you live at a higher elevation, increase the boiling time.
The egg pricker is a very useful little tool that pricks a small hole in the bottom of the egg, allowing the air to escape (and thus preventing the egg from cracking as it boils).
