Recipe (serves 2)
Soft-boiled Egg:

2-4 Free range Eggs with shell intact, at room temperature. In Singapore, room temperature is approximately 24-26°C (around 75-78°F).
Boiling hot water.

Method:
1. Rinse eggs well to rid of dirt and make sure there are no cracks.
2. Lay eggs inside a small pot in single layer.
3. Pour boiling hot water into the pot, submerging eggs completely.
4. Cover with a tight lid for 5 minutes.
5. Scoop eggs out with a spoon and discard water.
6. Crack eggs open and scoop out any contents left in shell.
7. Eat with a dash of white pepper powder and a drizzle of light or dark soy sauce.
8. Mop eggs with a slice of toast, if desired.

While our western brothers and sisters are having Continental or American breakfasts; a typical Singaporean breakfast (or afternoon tea) set would consists of a hot beverage, usually sweetened black coffee (kopi-O) or milk tea (teh C) with a plate of butter and kaya toasts and a side order of 2 soft boiled eggs.

Happy break fasting 🙂

    mmm i’ll have to try this at home. What is that green paste on the side?

    Try using Maggi instead of dark soy, for some reason Maggi goes really well with the runny yolk on toast!
