Boiled Eggs Recipe
How to boil eggs at home
Boiled Eggs Recipe is a simple recipe which can be a protein booster in the morning or as a mid meal time snack. But though the boiled eggs seems simple enough to prepare, we could either undercook or overcook the eggs. You can carry a boiled egg along with lunch to office, college or school, or have them seasoned with a dash of salt and pepper. These boiled eggs can also be included in making Nargisi Kofta Recipe, Egg Roast Curry Recipe or in making simple Stuffed Deviled Eggs with Parsley and Mayonnaise. Two boiled eggs with a glass of Peanut Butter Lassi (Yogurt Smoothie) will make a fulfilling breakfast or they can be put together with scallions and sun dried tomatoes for Egg Salad Recipe to accompany meal.

How to make Boiled Eggs Recipe
To Boil Eggs, take whole eggs in a saucepan. You can check the freshness of eggs by putting them carefully and slowly in a glass of plain water. If the egg settles at the bottom, they're fresh and are good to consume. If they float partially or completely, discard them as they are stale already. Do this check before you do any egg recipe so that the recipe will not be any affected with stale eggs.
Add enough water into it so that the eggs are immersed completely and in a single layer. Do not pile the eggs one on top of another. Also, also make sure that the water level is about inches above the eggs, failing which the gradual evaporation of water during rolling boil will leave the eggs imperfectly cooked and eggs may develop a greenish layer.
Keep the saucepan on medium heat and let the water boil. Boil the contents for 8-12 minutes with or without covering the pan. If you need soft boiled eggs, switch off at 8 minutes; or you can continue to boil eggs for 12 minutes for perfectly cooked hard boiled eggs.
You can immediately take the eggs out from a slotted spoon and put them in ice cold water to curb further cooking.
Peel off the skin, cut to half, season with salt and pepper and the boiled eggs recipe is good to be eaten.
