How to Cook the Perfect Fried Egg

Eggs are ever-present in our home - I use eggs to create many delicious, healthy and nutritious meals for our family. Half boiled, hard boiled, steamed, omelettes, scrambled or fried, we love them all! My kids favorite is fried egg - they can eat it on its own or topped on their favorite food such as fried rice or mee goreng.

When I was growing up, my mum used to cook me fried eggs with crispy edges all the time and I loved them! I was happy to discover that I could get the much-loved fried egg from my childhood by using Planta.

Planta has been Malaysia's trusted and leading margarine brand for generations. Planta is categorized under Ambient Margarine which means that it can be stored in a cool and dry place. 

With Planta, the eggs are more tasty, thanks to the crispy crunchy edges, and wonderful aroma. Furthermore, there is less splatter when cooking and you will not need to add any seasoning to the Planta fried egg (no salt/pepper/soy sauce required).

On 15 May 2015, we attended an exclusive event held by Planta in 1 Utama Shopping Centre to unveil the secret ingredient of the delicious fried egg. Members of the public and media were invited to participate in a Fried Egg Recipe War, whereby we were asked to taste the difference between two fried eggs - one cooked in Planta and one cooked in oil in a blind taste test. Then, we were asked to vote for our preferred fried egg recipe. And the winner was..... *drumrolls*.... the Planta fried egg!

Blind taste test

Which egg was crowned the winner in the Fried Egg Recipe War? It's none other than Planta Fried Egg #telurgorengplanta :)

"Fried egg is certainly a go-to recipe for mothers everywhere. We hope to give mothers another delicious way to equip kids to grow," said Joel Lim, Brand Manager, Foods, Unilever (M) Holdings Sdn Bhd.

Before the blind taste test, we were also given a cooking demonstration by Sharifah Sofia, an actress and mother of two children, as well as renowned chef, Chef Zaida. Using a clean and dry tablespoon,  measure and place 1 tablespoonful of Planta in a frying pan over high heat, and once the Planta has melted, break an egg in the pan. Fry the egg over medium high heat for a couple of minutes, until the edges are crispy and fragrant. Simple and fast!

"The experience today proved that Planta fried egg delivers the best in taste, aroma, appetizing colour and texture that tantalises the taste buds and looks good on the plate. Mothers who adopt Planta to their fried egg recipe will find it easy to do and assured that kids will love it even more," added Joel.

It's easy to achieve the perfect fried egg with Planta!
