Poach an egg to a strainer and strain the lighter whites, take the yolk and thicker whites to a small bowl. Set aside, we will use it for boiling.

  • Boil water in a bigger pan, make sure you’re not using too little of water as we want to make a vortex (water swirl / whirling) in the water
  • When it’s almot come to a boil, but not until it’s boiling, you’ll see many bubbles on the base of the pan. Start making a vortex (make it from slow to fast gently)
  • Then take your egg in a bowl and pour it to the center of the vortex while it’s still whirling
  • If the whirling stop to fast, use a spatula to add more whirl but becareful to not touch the egg
  • Boil the eggs for 3 minutes, pick it up
  • Put it in a bowl of water + ice cubes to stop the cooking
  • If you want to serve it warm, simply dip it in a warm / hot water for coupr of seconds and serve
