How to Make Hard Boiled Eggs in Mealthy Multipot
- Plug in the Multipot, and pour 1.5 cups of water in the inner pot. And it’s best to use really cold water for this, as the temperature of water determines how much time the Multipot takes to come to pressure, which in this case, means a few minutes of additional cooking time.
- Then place the trivet in the pot, and the eggs on the trivet.
- I have used 6 eggs, but you can follow the same exact method / timings, and use the same quantity of water for boiling anywhere from 4-12 eggs. If you need more than 12 eggs, it’s best to start a new batch.
- Also, I have simply placed the eggs side by side on the trivet, but if you are using a larger quantity of eggs, you can stack them, one above the other, and that’ll be fine. Alternatively, you can use a pressure cooker egg stacker like this one.
- Once the eggs are in, close the Multipot lid, and ensure it’s sealed.
- Then press the pressure cook button, select pressure level high, time to be 5 minutes, and pressure release style to be natural.
- The Multipot will preheat for a few minutes, after which the 5 minute cooking cycle will begin.
- Once the cooking cycle is complete, wait for 5 minutes before manually releasing all the pressure from the pot, and open the lid.
- Then remove the eggs from the pot, and transfer them directly to an ice-bath for 5 minutes. This is important to stop the cooking process, and not have overcooked boiled eggs.
- Once the eggs have cooled down, start peeling them.
- Perfect, easy peel hard boiled eggs are ready.
- Cut & serve them as is, by sprinkling on a little salt and pepper on them, or use them in other dishes like Egg Biryani or Anda Curry.
