Ajitsuke Tamago (Japanese flavored soft boiled eggs) 溏心蛋

My family love this Ajitsuke Tamago ( Japanese flavored soft boiled eggs ) which served in a Japanese ramen restaurant located at Subang. Usually we like to order additional eggs which cost us RM 2 for one egg. Since it is quite easy to make this at home, i made this when i cooked ramen (i found a good subsitution using local noodles) the other day.

Boil egg in simmering water , one egg was cracked. If you ask me how not to crack the egg when boiling eggs, sorry, i don't know, hehehe..

Try to use aged eggs, so easy to peel the egg shell..

I tried few batches with difference timing from 6mins- 7mins, we prefer egg done at 7mins, not too runny of egg yolk but still taste soft ..

Ajitsuke Tamago (Japanese flavored soft boiled eggs)
(recipe source: Sauce seasonings as described by Nami Just One Cookbook, by Sonia aka Nasi Lemak Lover)

10 kampung eggs (organic eggs), aged eggs, weight from 54g-58g each

A pot of water enough to cover the eggs completely
A bowl of tap water

Marinate sauce seasonings

2 cups hot water
IMG_3698 copy 1 sachet of dashi stock powder
1tbsp Japanese light soy sauce and 1/2tsp dark caramel soy sauce for deeper colouring
1tbsp Mirin
1/2tbsp Sake
1tsp salt

Method

1. Combine sauce seasonings in a bowl, set aside
2. Bring the pot of water to boil, once boiled, lower the heat to let water simmering.
3. Add in eggs and boil for 7mins (water temperature at 94C). (for my induction cooker, cook at 140C)
4. Once done, immediately cool it down it a bowl of tap water. Once cooled down, peel the eggs.
5. Add eggs into marinate sauce and marinate for 3hrs. Stir the eggs from time to time for even colouring.
6. Do not soak them for too long as the whites will turn rubbery and it might taste too salty.

Stay tuned for my easy ramen post which serve with this soft boiled eggs.

Hi Sonia
You are getting very good in Japanese food! Looking at the eggs that done in 7 minutes looks perfect and I guess I am one that like to be done in this timing too ... I like a little soft too

Phong Hong said...

Sonia, nice lor! I love eggs and I will sure love these marinated eggs. Next time when you boil eggs, try put some salt into the water. It will help prevent the eggs from cracking.

Thank you so much for the mention Sonia! Your tamago looks perfect. I can eat this any time... We often says the crack of eggs in boiling water is that the heat (for boiling) was too strong and eggs dancing and bumping each other which causes cracks. Not sure if this is the case, but just a thought. :) Now I want to put these on ramen and eat it...

Sonia,

To prevent the eggs shells from cracking, put the eggs in the cold water and start boiling the water. Start timing when the water starts to boil. For soft yolk like those in you have taken, it takes between 5 to 6 minutes after that.

I think it's easier to achieve this type of eggs, if you coil the eggs straight from the fridge. I normally will get this runny egg yolk when I cook it straight from the fridge.
