Prepare poached eggs by stovetop or InstantPot pressure cooker. If by stovetop, fill a saucepan with water and a tablespoon of lemon juice and bring to a simmer. When simmering, crack eggs into the water and stir very quickly, removing with a slotted spoon when the egg whites are solid. If preparing by InstantPot, follow your pressure cooker’s instructions by using a silicone poached egg liner or glass bowls and bring to pressure for 2 minutes, then release the pressure manually.
Mix the cilbir (yogurt sauce) ingredients together until well-combined. Set aside.
Heat the butter in a saucepan or in the microwave, then stir in the seasonings.
Serve poached eggs over the cilbir (yogurt sauce) and drizzle with chili butter.
Garnish with optional fresh herbs.
Store any leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days.
