Ingredients4 hens eggs or 6 pullets eggs
1 teaspoon turmeric
- Boil the eggs to the soft set stage, then plunge them into cold or iced water to stop them cooking.
- Mix the spices together.
- Peel the eggs and roll them in the spices.
In a wok or heavy bottomed pan heat the oil until shimmering not smoking, gently lower the eggs, a few at a time so as to not overload your pan, and fry turning occasionally until they are browned and blistered all over. Remove from the oil and drain on kitchen paper.
Everyone has their own preferred method for cooking eggs, so this is just a guide. To cook eggs the soft set stage I place the eggs in a pan and pour in water to top of the eggs, then place the pan on a hob on high heat to come to the boil. For medium hens eggs I boil 3 ½ minutes and for pullet eggs 2 ½ minutes.
These eggs are great served simply with salt or mustang salt for a picnic or used in egg curry.
