A recent recipe for extra creamy and fluffy scrambled eggs has gone viral with people claiming it’s “the best they’ve ever had”. When we heard about this, we of course had to see for ourselves.
Kenji López-Al, a well known chef came up with the simple 3 step recipe for the perfect scrambled eggs. He revealed the secret to making your scrambled eggs light and fluffy and not rubbery or chewy is to add a small amount of starch. He said: “Adding a small amount of starchy slurry to scrambled eggs prevents them from setting up too firmly. This results in the eggs that stay tender and moist”.
The viral recipe says by adding 2 tablespoons of starch when making your eggs, this will make for the perfect texture to your scrambled eggs. You can use cornflour or potato starch to do this.
For the method, Kenji says to whisk in the starch with 1 and a 1/2 teaspoons of water until it is completely smooth with no lumps, before adding half the butter cubes, eggs and salt and whisking until “frothy”.
Then, heat a tablespoon of water in a nonstick skillet over medium-high, swirling gently until the water evaporates. Making sure to leave behind only a few small droplets.
Next, immediately add the remaining two tablespoons butter and swirl until the butter is mostly melted and foamy. This should take about 10 seconds. Finally, add the egg mixture and “cook, pushing and folding the eggs with a spatula, until they are slightly less cooked than you’d like them, about one to two minutes, depending on doneness.” says Kenji.
The chef lastly says “More vigorous stirring will result in finer, softer curds, while more leisurely stirring will result in larger, fluffier curds. Immediately transfer to the serving plate, and serve.”
Since the recipe went viral, many have taken to the internet to express their delight in finding this recipe. One said “These scrambled eggs are the best I’ve ever tasted. I’ll remember to take a photo next time before I inhale them”. Another said ” I am so pleased to have found this recipe for scrambled eggs. The starch really makes the difference”
