COOKING TIPS: How to Hard-Boil the Eggs and Cut them Neatly?

How to Hard-Boil the Eggs and Cut them Neatly? In this post I have shared the method to hard boil the eggs without breaking and how to cut them neatly. Initially when I started cooking, if I boil eggs either it will break or it will be half boiled :( But slowly I learnt how to boil it without breaking. Also when we cut the eggs for making egg masala or gravy, it will not be smooth in the cutting line and the yolk will separate on cooking. So I have showed you how to cut it neat and nice.
