Why would a post required on how to boil the eggs? Yep,that might be the question in your mind when you read the title. Though I have been eating eggs from childhood and i tried various egg recipe with boiled eggs for past 6 years,still when comes to boil the egg perfectly is bit tricky for me. Either it's over cooked and leave the green ring around the yolk or under cooked with middle part is still gooey in consistency. 

Seriously for really very long time,I don't know that green ring around the yolk is a result of over cooking the eggs.I thought that might be the nature of some eggs,silly me.Later i googled on how to cook eggs perfectly, i found lot of method and tried each one of them, but the method that i have mentioned here works perfect for me every time without fail.It yields perfectly cooked yolk every time yeah,literally every time,neither it has green ring nor it's gooey at the center.So i'm sharing this here that might be useful to beginners in cooking.
