1Soft Boiling – 3 Minutes
If you want to take test of soft yellow part then you should adopt this method. You may boil an egg for 3 minutes for very soft boiling. 3 to 4 minutes are enough for eggs to be prepare for soft boiling. white will be just boiled and yolk (yellow part) will be still very soft like it was before boiling. it will not be hard during 3 minutes.
2Medium soft Boiling – 4 Minutes
You may take 4 minutes for medium soft boiling. Within 4 minutes white part will be fully boiled and yolk (yellow part) will still medium soft. Many cooks like this method most. This is my choice. I like this recipe most. Medium soft yellow part and salt brings water in my mouth.
[When ever my family member ask me then i prefer above time limits for better boiling an egg.]
3Medium Hard Boil – 5 Minutes
You may wait 5 Minutes for hard boil. During this period an egg will be boiled just fine.
To boil an egg completely hard you need to wait and boil an egg for 8 to 9 Minutes.
For maximum proteins level – If you take maximum proteins advantage then boil an egg for 5 minutes i mentioned above and try to choose fresh egg rather than old egg. Fresh egg has maximum proteins but if you are high cholesterol patient then you should avoid daily dose of eggs.
