Deep Fried Soft Boiled Eggs

Ingredients

  • 2 eggs
  • Oil for deep fry (Canola/vegetable oil/light olive oil)
  • 1/2 cup plain flour
  • 1/4 cup water(ice cold water to make a batter)
  • 1/2 teaspoon Italian seasoning or garlic bread seasoning
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 cup Panko breadcrumbs

Instructions:

I have to tell you that I just love the perfect soft boiled eggs, The taste of the runny yolk is awesome. This fits in with multiple items, it can be burger, sandwich, salad and it by itself is just so yummy.

This was a very difficult one initially, I have tried this multiple times on different recipes. I have to say it went wrong so many times. Sometimes, the egg gets boiled more than what I expected or sometimes it gets undercooked. The key to a great “Deep fried egg”  lies on how perfectly you cook your eggs.

Ok, so let’s get started.  I recommend to first boil the water. Put the 2 eggs carefully so that it does not break.

Cook the 2 eggs for 6 minutes in medium high flames. My eggs are medium size, so 6 minutes works just right for me in medium-high flames. Depending on your egg sizes, you can increase or decrease a minute up and down.

I have to give ice bath to my cute little eggs so that they will stop cooking right way. This is an important step to ensure that you get your eggs right.

Take a bowl and put approximately 3 cups of water along with  10 cubes of ice. Put the cooked eggs in the ice bowl and let it sit in there for few minutes. You can now peel them carefully.

Time to make Batter now, I make a very simple batter so the eggs can get coated with it easily.

In a bowl, take plain flour and 1/4 cup of water(you might need less water, try to make it like pancake batter) Since I love garlic, I add garlic bread seasoning, salt, and pepper along. Now mix them well.

Drop the eggs one by one.

Make sure you keep one hand clean and dry.

Since I have already put seasoning in the batter, I am not going to put it in my breadcrumb.

Put the first batter egg in the breadcrumb and coat it properly with your dry hand. Keep it aside and repeat the same process for the next egg.

Take a deep fry pan and put oil. Heat it up at medium flame. Wait for the oil to be ready for the eggs to dive in.

My way to find out the readiness of the oil is to dip a wooden chopstick or the wooden handle of a spoon. If you see bubbles coming up, that means you are good.

Fry the eggs until golden brown.  Your fried eggs are ready. Yayyy!! and please do let me know how it turns out for you, I will be really glad to get some feedback.
