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 .
