Malaysian Style Half Boiled Eggs

I cannot think of any Malaysian who hasn't have this half boiled egg for breakfast at least once in their life.

I used to have this half boiled eggs almost everyday as a kid when dad use to bring back Kampung eggs from Malay village.... I still crave for this whenever I miss home!

1/2 liter of water
2 large Organic eggs (from refrigerator)

1. Bring the water to rolling boil in a deep pot, switch the stove off. Using a slotted spoon slowly and gently place the eggs into the pot and make sure the eggs are submerged with hot water.

2. Start the timer, timed for exactly 7 minutes, take the eggs out immediately.

3. Using a teaspoon, crack the egg shells and pour the soft boiled eggs into a bowl, make sure to scratch out remaining egg white that sticks to the shell.

4. Serve with few drops of soya sauce and a little pepper powder.
