  1. This is known as poached eggs, very popular in Bengal since pre-independnce, not half fried eggs. As kids we used to hear poached eggs very often from my mom and,my aunties. It can be directly done in the work by cracking the eggs without help of any container or cup.

    1. Hi Samita – thank you for stopping by. Poached egg is different – it involves cooking cracked eggs in water and this recipe does not call for that. Hope this helps!
