If you were still thinking whether the 'cholesterol scare' about the egg is indeed as bad as it's made out to be, listen to this—it's not nearly as bad as an overcooked egg. An egg, when overcooked produces hydrogen sulphide (in its white) and when that combines with the yolk (iron), you're in possession of a lethal gas—iron sulphide. So unless you're keen on destructive chemical forces, cook your eggs the recommended way and avoid overcooking them.

Place the eggs in a saucepan

Add enough water to stay over the eggs by an inch

Now, light the stove

Once the water is boiled, switch off the flame

Close with a lid

Let the eggs sit in the hot water for 10 minutes

Remove and pass over to cold water (Or cool under cold running water)

Now, to peel them, here's a quick trick

Pass an egg into a glass

Fill the glass with water, a couple of inches over the egg

Hold the glass in one hand partially covering its mouth

Shake vigorously so that all the water escapes

The shell would have cracked, which you can then peel off in one go

There's your perfectly boiled eggs
