    Ingredients
    • large eggs (50 g each w/o shell)
    Instructions
    1. Put water in a saucepan, and gently put eggs in a single layer. Make sure the eggs are completely covered by water. Bring the water to boil on medium heat. If you want your egg yolk to be in the center, gently rotate the eggs with chopsticks once in a while for the first 3 minutes so the egg yolk will be in the center.
