Making the perfect Poached Egg …..Yes you can, using this easy technique!

For me…A poached egg is the purest form of enjoying an egg! Till now, I would steam poach them, since I never could get the ‘real poached eggs’ right! However thanks to Sid, today morning I made and enjoyed the perfect poached egg…not once but twice in a row!! His technique of making poached eggs really rocks and is absolutely fool proof!


Place a small ceramic bowl in a wide pan filled with water so that the bowl is completely submerged. On medium heat, bring the pan to a rolling boil. Reduce heat to a simmer. Now break the egg in a cup/katori. Slide the egg gently into the submerged ceramic bowl and cook for 4-5 minutes….depending on how runny you like your yolks to be. Use a tablespoon to gently lift the poached egg out. Sprinkle with salt n pepper…enjoy!
