    For the soft boiled eggs: heat a deep fryer to 200°C.
    Bring a large pan of water to the boil. Add 6 of the eggs to the pan and cook for 4 and a half minutes. Cool the eggs under cold water and then carefully remove the shells.
    Place the flour and breadcrumbs into two separate flat dishes. Beat together the remaining 3 eggs and season with salt and pepper before placing in a third flat dish.
    Roll the boiled eggs first through the flour, then the beaten egg followed by the breadcrumbs. Roll them through the beaten egg and the breadcrumbs a second time.
    Cook the eggs in the deep fat fryer for 2 minutes until the coating is golden brown.
