I did it!! I finally learnt to poach eggs! And I have the very attractive legendary, Nigella Lawson to thank for it!
It’s actually so simple that it’s scary. But trust me, its really easy! I know what you must be thinking!! Nah! you say! I get it! I have no count of the number of eggs reduced to broken yolks and litres of water bubbling with broken scattered albumin! But one look at this recipe, and I can guarantee that you will be willing to try poaching eggs and you will succeed!
This video / recipe will banish all myths about vinegar in the water, or swirling the water into a vortex, or that you need special skills to make this dubious poached egg!
When you break the egg in the water the white will move away. But as it cooks the white remembers it’s DNA and goes up and envelopes the yolk again. It’s quite interesting to note this, and reminds us to never fail to be amazed by nature and all things natural.
This has become my favourite meal in a bowl. It’s quick, easy (yes! it is!) and super super tasty. Specially when you get to the last part where the egg yolk breaks and mixes with the curds and butter sauce! Then – it just melts in the mouth setting off a palate explosion!
I really have not much more to say in this post because you really have to taste it to know how strangled for words it will leave you!
Go for it! And message me with pics!!!
