Chef's Notes

  • To make half boiled eggs, bring the water up to a boil, then lower the heat to a simmer. Add the eggs to the pot and cook for 5 mins for a runny egg and 7 mins for a slightly firmer, easier to scoop eggs.
  • To make the crunchy yellow noodle, cut the yellow noodles into 1/2 inch lengths. Heat the oil and when the temperature hits 190ºC, put a handful of the chopped noodles into the hot oil. Fry for 3 mins and drain. Alternately, you could air-fry for 4 mins at 180ºC
