  • Step 1

    Turn on the Ninja multi cooker and select the slow-cook option on High, pour 1.5l of water and the vinegar in the pot and start the timer, allow 10-15 mins for the water to heat up.

  • Step 2

    Crack the eggs into ramekins or little bowls, this will make it easier to drop in the multi cooker after.

  • Step 3

    Once the water has warmed up, lift the lid and create a whirlpool using a spoon and drop the cracked eggs one at the time. Close the lid and allow the eggs to cook – this will take about 7-8 mins, but check the process after 5.

  • Step 4

    While the eggs are cooking make the sauce – mix the yogurt with the olive oil, garlic, dill, mint and season with salt and pepper and split it between two bowls.

  • Step 5

    Mix the melted butter with the chilli flakes, cumin and paprika then season and keep warm.

  • Step 6

    Once the eggs are ready place them on top of the yogurt sauce and drizzle some of the warm butter.

  • Step 7

    Garnish with more dill and serve with warm bread.
