After a boil, add six eggs to the pan and boil them for about 5 minutes. Once done, place them in ice-cold water, doing this will retain a runny yolk. Keep them in the cold water for at least 10 minutes. You can choose to extend your time of boiling to 10 mins in case if you wish to have your egg yolk fully boiled.

Next, crack the remaining two raw eggs in a bowl with the milk and season with a little salt, beat them together until everything is mixed well. In another bowl, place the flour along with a little salt and pepper powder. You can choose multiple variety of flour like besan/gram flour/almond flour/ oats flour or a mixture of wholewheat flour/ atta with oats flour to make it more nutritious and healthy.

  • Step 5: To assemble the eggs one by one, roll one egg on the flour bowl and place it at the centre of the flattened minced chicken mixture. Gently encase the egg so that it is covered completely with the minced chicken. Then dip this covered egg in the flour, and then the egg-milk mixture, and finally with the breadcrumbs. Repeat this procedure once again to ensure that the boiled egg inside won’t burst out open. Do this with the remaining eggs.
