Separate the egg yolks and whites to separate bowls. Please make sure that there should not be white in the yellow at all. (Using a muslin cloth strain the egg yolk into a dry bowl).

Add sugar and water, and boil it. Add a little egg white (very little) into the syrup to remove the impurities from the syrup. You can see the scum coming up in the syrup. Now remove it from the fire and strain the syrup using a clean muslin cloth. Heat the syrup again. When the syrup thickens (not very sticky) take the plastic bottle and fill it with some egg yolk, placing your finger on the hole. Remove your finger from the bottle and pour the yolk in a circular motion into the syrup to form noodle like strings. Do this until the egg yolk in the bottle is over. Now reduce the flame and sprinkle a little cold water into the syrup. Remove yolk strings from the syrup. Spread it in a plate without breaking the strings. Keep the one side of the plate a little raised to remove the excess syrup from the yolk strings. Use all the yolks in this way. If the syrup becomes too thick pour a little water. Keep aside the syrup for preparing the egg white.
