In a deep sauce pan bring water to a boil, add I the vinegar and turn down the heat, swirl the water with a spoon and add the egg to the center – poach the egg for 3 minutes, the whites will firm up and the yolk will be runny. Remove with a slotted spoon and drain on a paper towel to remove the excess water.

In a small frying pan, melt the butter over low heat, once warm, add in the chili flakes and remove from the heat, season with salt.

Method to plate up:

Add a few scoops of the garlic yoghurt to a deep plate or a shallow bowl, with the back of the spoon, carve out a space in the center to place the egg, drizzle with the warm chili butter. Serve with sourdough toast/ pita or lavache crisps.

Cilbir is basically garlic yoghurt with poached egg and chili butter. The smooth garlicky yoghurt coupled with the richness of the poached egg and the zing from the chilli butter makes for a great dip to mop up.
