Hard Boiled Eggs


Cooking hard boiled eggs can be a hassle because you have to kor hui and kor chui in hokkien, jaga api and jaga air in Malay and in english, meaning you have to regulated the heat and the amount of water used.
Jean Scully was so kind to share this method of cooking the eggs whereby you don't have to worry whether they are over-cooked or under-cooked.


Ingredients:




Rice Cooker

2 sheets of Kitchen Towel

2 or more eggs(enough to put in a single layer in the rice cooker)

Method:


Wet 2 sheets of kitchen towels and wring out excess water.

Put them in the rice cooker












Put 2 or more eggs on top of wet kitchen towels








Close the lid of rice cooker and press 'cook'.


When the 'cook' button is off and turns to 'warm' - eggs should be ready if they were in room temperature to start with, but if they were from the fridge, keep cooked eggs in the 'warm' function for a while to fully hard cooked the eggs.

Viola!! Hard boiled eggs

Instead of paper towel, will this work with a wet cloth?

i am sure a wet cloth will work too but remember to wring dry the cloth otherwise if too wet, it will take forever to create steam but you are cooking more eggs, then wet more.

Hi, what about soft-boiled eggs? I can't get it right - either too raw or became hard boiled eggs! Could you share your recipe? Tks!

After putting into the rice cooker, what is the next step? I couldn't find the entire method.

how come you could not read the portion when it is said 'press' the cook button. then when the cook button is off and turn to 'warm'. the eggs should be done.

I have the same problem as Joan's. The recipe is incomplete.The first day the recipe posted, I saw a bunch of strange squiggles at the top of the page, and the recipe stops at "Put two more eggs...wet towel." Today, no squiggles, but the recipe still ends at the same place. Should I click on something to get the full recipe? Thanks, Lily - ME LOVE ALL YA RECIPES!

PS: I'm using firefox. Never had any problems viewing your site before.

I still can't see the rest of the recipe. Not sure what's wrong. Other recipes are fine.

Could you copy and paste the rest of the steps onto the comment box? Thanks!

if your eggs are straight from the fridge, then you would have to cook a little longer and sprinkle more water onto the paper so as to create more steam.
