  11. 11. How to scramble the eggs?  One of the most popular breakfast is Scrambled Eggs hence it makes it to my list of 5 cooking basics.  Start with 3 eggs, don't season it, because if you put salt at this stage it breaks down the eggs and it starts turning into something sort of very watery.  Add the eggs in the pan.  Add some butter in it. 11
  12. 12.  It's important to add butter at this stage because it gives that nice velvety finish to the scrambled egg.  Turn on the heat and with the help of spatula start whisking in the pan (remember, never whisk the egg).  Once it starts to come together and becomes a little bit thick, back off the heat and whisk it 3-4 times, Keep it back onto the heat, whisk it, back off the heat now, keep on whisking.  If you put it onto heat now it may overcook, let it cook due by the temperature of the pan and add some creme in it to stop it from overcooking.  Season it at this stage and serve it with a toasted bread.  Learn from some of the best chefs in the world on Xpert for free.  Xpert is an app where one can connect with the professionals who are best in what they do. 12
