Learn how to perfectly poach eggs with this Turmeric Poached Egg recipe.
Poached eggs are one of my favorite ways to prepare eggs. Whether it be Eggs Benedict or this turmeric poached egg, the basics of the dishes are simple: an egg cooked in a warm liquid.
Have you ever poached an egg before?
Today I am going to share with you the basic technique of poaching eggs. It’s a great technique that really elevates any egg dish.
First, fill up your pot with water and add a splash of vinegar. This helps coagulate the egg.
Next bring your pot to a boil and reduce to a simmer. You don’t want the water to boil otherwise it will scramble to egg.
The best way to ensure that the egg white wraps around the yolk is to slowly stir the water while adding the egg into the middle of the whirlpool will force the egg white to attach to the yolk.
Finally, remove the egg with a slotted spoon and place into a water bath to stop the cooking process. (If you are cooking a small amount of eggs you can skip this step and serve them immediately). Once you have cooked all of your eggs reheat them gently in warm water and blot with a paper towel to absorb the excess water.
