Shape egg white into round ball by gently rolling it against side of pan using wooden spoon; cook until yolk is almost set, 1 to 2 minutes. Turn egg over; cook until yolk is set, about 1 minute longer. Remove egg from oil with slotted spoon and drain on paper toweling. Repeat to cook remaining 3 eggs.
