Learn how to make perfect hard boiled eggs each time with this step by step video
Medium Hard Boiled eggs are an absolute favorite of mine for the breakfast and something which I can say is cooked regularly in our home. It has properly cooked egg whites and yolk is soft and moist still, you can cut through this. It takes exactly 4 minutes after water comes to rolling boil consistency.
But hard boiled is what I use most when I need to protein in our meals. Because you can just chop it and pop on a salad, make deviled eggs when you want a quick snack or appetizer. Or, simply make an eggcellent egg curry in a different style depending on your mood that day.
In this tutorial, I am sharing how to hard boil eggs every time.
How to Hard Boil Eggs
I mostly use them for making salads, biryani or sometimes Indian style curries. You need to cook the eggs 6 minutes for the perfectly set whites and yolks both. Easy to cook though a minute here and there does not make much difference but it is easy for the yolk to develop a gray layer which I really don’t like so I set a timer on my phone and take them out precisely after 6 minutes.

Whenever you are boiling eggs always make sure that they have enough space in the pan for even cooking and also water level should be one inch above the surface of eggs.
Many times egg shell break and in the process, some egg white gets leaked which is not either good to look at or taste either. To prevent this use eggs when water heated through, and add 1 tsp of vinegar to the boiling water.
Peeling boiled eggs smoothly is another problem, to peel them perfectly remove discard hot water and let the egg stay in the pan. Add cool water to eggs and let them stay for a minute or two. This helps to shrink the membrane that connects egg shells to the whites of the egg and it peels easily.
When the eggs are cooked, carefully pour out most of the hot water, leaving the eggs in the pan. Set the pan in the sink under cool running water for a few minutes until the eggs are barely warm. If the shells are stubborn, try peeling them under running water. The fresher the egg, the more attached the shell, so for boiling, older eggs are preferable.

His method involves starting the eggs in cold water when water comes to rolling boil, he turns off the heat and covers the pan with a lid, 12 minutes and you get perfect soft boiled eggs.
Both methods give you great results, choose the one that suits you I prefer to go the quick one as I am always in the perpetual hurry 🙂 and hardly have the patience to spend much time waiting for the food. Cons of my method that you have to be near the stove. Pros of my husband’s method you can multitask because you don’t have to be near stove watching for eggs and con is only it takes time.
