Malaysian Egg Benedict

I can't help but wonder why do kids of these days really fuss about food? Tell me please parents? All I know is that parents are quick in pointing what their kids won't even smell, but ask the same parents what's with kids fussing, you get a blank look? Puzzling isn't when parents are the ones who mostly preciously select the food for preciously feeding their precious darlings? Yet, they are also lost about the fussy pots. I have given up on finding out why, nevertheless, most precious gems won't mind eggs (Egg Fish Steamed Rolls, Egg Potato Curry, Egg Vindaloo & Egg Rasam) or perhaps a dish incorporated with it as well (Prawn Mee, Anchovies Fried Rice, Chicken Salted Eggs, Tofu Scrambled Egg & Chicken Black Vinegar) Really? Never-mind, I am still going ahead with the recipe to this Malaysian Egg Benedict (Malaysian Spicy Fried Chicken Wings). Call it the tweeted, twisted or turned around style which by far is not far behind the original egg Benedict, it is the localised version (Mint Mushroom Burger). Gooey poached egg smothered with chilli spring onion sauce, paired with toast and blanched beans.

For the eggs
2 eggs
1/2 tbsp apple cider vinegar (can use normal vinegar)
Salt for taste

For the sauce
1 1/2 tbsp mayonnaise
1/2 tbsp yellow mustard sauce
1 tsp apple cider vinegar/normal vinegar
3 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp sugar
1 stalk spring onion - chopped
1 red chilli - chopped
Salt to taste

For the toast
4 slices French loaf
2 tbsp butter

For the eggs
Fill a pan with high sides with enough water. 
Add vinegar and bring to a slow boil.
Break each one of the egg in a small bowl.
Drop eggs into the boiling water.
Cook for 3 minutes and remove with slotted spoon.
For the sauce
Into a mixing bowl, whisk mayonnaise, mustard, vinegar and olive oil
When the sauce thickens, add the rest of the ingredients.
Gently mix and keep aside.

For the toast
Butter both sides of the sliced loaf.
Either grill or bake till golden brown in color.

To serve
Place two slices of toast on a serving plate.
Add one of the poached eggs on top.
Spoon the sauce over.
Optional: Can be served with blanched veggies e.g. snow peas.
Don't forget to trend alongside "cook with nava-k" on every other social media please!!
