Lightly beat the egg so that no bubbles form.

Turn off the heat the minute you begin pouring in the egg (this produces silkier threads).

Pour the egg in a very slow stream (pouring it through the tines of a fork from several inches above the pot is a good way to keep the stream slow and steady).

Begin stirring as soon as you start pouring in the egg.

To make shreds or threads, stir rapidly for at least 1 minute.

Stir the beaten egg in one direction only.
