Kwek-Kwek (Tukneneng)

Kwek-kwek or also called Tukneneng is made of fried quail eggs and coated with batter usually colored orange. This is very popular as one of Pinoy's street foods.

I've seen bigger version of this recipe, which I guess is made with chicken eggs, thus I haven't tried it yet. Any how let's just indulge with the little version of this recipe. =D

  • 1 dozen peeled hard boiled quail eggs (or chicken eggs)
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1/2 cup water
  • few drops of orange food coloring /  1/2 tsp atsuete powder
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • cooking oil

  1. Put the quail eggs in a clean plastic bag or zip lock, with 1/4 cup flour. Shake until eggs are evenly coated. Set aside.
  2. In a bowl, mix all remaining ingredients except cooking oil.
  3. Use a wire whisk or fork, mix it to a smooth batter.
  4. Put those little eggs to the batter.
  5. Put enough cooking oil for deep frying in a shallow pan. Heat it.
  6. Spoon out those eggs from the batter and put it in the hot cooking oil.
  7. Wait till it cooks, about a minute or until the coating is crispy.
  8. Best serve with soy sauce, vinegar with chopped onions and chilli. Enjoy!
