Hi , everyone .
This is a welcome to Turkish food and travel .
In this episode we are making is a poached egg very famous from Ottoman Times , from 15th century .
We love egg and use it in many dishes and uh is one of them with its yogurt past pepper infused oil very easy to make .
And you can even eat it like a , a light lunch or feast in breakfast .
So let's begin .
My ingredients are very simple .
I have eggs , salt , red pepper flakes , bear vinegar .
I'm using grape vinegar .
You can use apple if you like and some thick yogurt .
You can also use garlic , but we don't prefer .
So I'm not gonna use it .
I have my serving plate ready .
I want my yogurt to get to at room temperature a little bit and you can also make it personal , but I'm gonna serve it all together .
So I'm making a base .
If I would use garlic , I would first uh mix it with yogurt and I put it in here .
So this is my base .
I think this will be enough .
So my yogurt base is ready and while it's getting to room temperature , we're gonna uh cook our eggs .
I have nice boiling hot water here , I'm gonna add my vinegar two tablespoons .
This will help to uh get a nice a poached egg .
Let me wait until it boils .
It is boiling .
Now , I want it to simmer .
So I lowered the heat .
I'm going to crack my egg into a bowl .
Yeah , gently .
Without disturbing the egg white .
The egg yolk .
I'm going to drop it gently into my water .
Here we go .
You can bring it together like , so let's , let's wait .
You can wait .
I'm gonna cross the second one .
If the heat is too low , you can open up a little bit to see some bubbling just a little .
You can also cook it one by one , but I'm gonna try it too .
Here we go .
Let me put this one away .
Uh I'm also gonna add the charge one and hey city uh set the time for 2.5 minutes .
Your timer is set for two minutes and 30 seconds .
Thank you .
So I have 2.5 minutes to cook them and here is the third one .
Here we go .
So this is the first one .
We're gonna take it out first .
We don't want to cook the egg yolk all the way to make it a little bit runny .
So they are simmering right now .
And meanwhile , I'm gonna make my , it be sauce .
Let me get some butter here you can also make it with olive oil .
It's ok .
But the butter always make it even more delicious .
I'm gonna use this bear .
It is mixed of hot and sweet .
You can use uh whichever you have if you don't have just use a paprika .
If you want , you can also heat up some dried mint together .
I think this bottle will be enough .
I added a bit too much because my body was frozen .
It's 2.5 minutes .
I'm adding my , uh , a bit more and checking the egg y'all .
It is hard .
I'm just gonna leave it here .
This one is a good looking good .
The third one , uh , still needs a little time .
I'm turning off the heat of the pepper and , uh , you know what I think we're gonna eat for , for the breakfast .
Oops and I forgot to use my bowl here , but things are ok .
So let me bring down here and this is probably right now in 2 , 2.5 minutes .
Yeah , I'm gonna take this off too .
And I'm gonna wait for this one for uh , two more minutes and it will be ready .
Check the eggs after 2.5 minutes .
It takes about three minutes .
You can , um , just touch the egg , egg yolk to see if it's still , um , springy .
And then take it to , this is also done .
Sometimes they , some people like to drain it on a paper towel , but I didn't want to touch it .
So I'm gonna just put it like this .
And here is the delicious butter , a red pepper flake mixture .
This makes the difference really ?
So I want to give some freshness and just added some dried mint and it's ready .
So I have on my bread .
I want to show you I can't wait to try .
It's been a long time .
I haven't made this .
You just dip your bread and break the egg yolk .
Mix everything with yogurt , some pepper sauce and enjoy this .
It's ready in no time .
Like five minutes .
Perfect dish for breakfast or lunch or any time of today .
