This traditional way of cooking eggs and serving it with yogurt goes back to the time of the Ottomans. The sweetness of the poached eggs and the sourness of the garlic yogurt goes well with the chili flakes & walnut butter on top. —Gamze Mutfakta (Piper Nigrum)
Test Kitchen Notes
WHO: This is Piper Nigrum (GamzE)’s first time as a contest finalist!
WHAT: Poached eggs in a bed of garlicky yogurt and topped with a spicy, walnut-y butter.
HOW: Poach eggs, mix yogurt with mashed garlic, and fry chili flakes and walnuts in butter. Layer everything on a plate, season with red peppercorns and salt and pepper, and eat.
WHY WE LOVE IT: A quick egg dish that gives you a lot of flavor for minimal effort. If you really like garlic, don’t be afraid to use a clove more, and be sure to use good yogurt—it really makes the dish. —The Editors
