Chinese Tea Eggs/Marbled eggs



Tried this recipe from  Appetite For China. Was really trying to imagine its taste when there was a mixed smell all around the room while this was boiling...Like its beauty its yummy too...










Egg-3 no large/ Medium
Black Tea-1 tbsp
Dark Soy Sauce-1/4 cup
Salt to taste
Sugar-1/2 tsp
Star Anise-2 no
Cinamon stick-2 inch approx.
Pepper corns-1/2 tsp(cracked)






Method Of Preparation:
1. Add water and egg in a vessel and boil it. Let the eggs get cooked ie 5 min on medium
2. Now allow it to cool so that it can be handled and then with the back side of spoon or knife crack all over the egg.There should be cracks alone, do not break the shell



3. Now return the egg back to the same vessel, see that there is water above the egg add all the ingredients to it and boil it for another 40 to 45 mins. Turn off the heat and keep the egg immersed in the liquid for 3 to 5 hours min. for dark designs on egg.
4. Serve warm or cold. Delicious both ways.Great as a side or snack..
