Kwek-Kwek Recipe (Tukneneng/Quail Eggs)

Being away from the Philippines for nine months, I usually crave from most of our Filipino dishes like the Lechon Baboy, Bikol Express, Laing, and others. Then there were the street foods like squid calamari, fishball with the sweet and sour sauce, chicken ball, squid balls from the streets of Makati City and most of all the Kwek-Kwek or the famous 'Tukneneng'. YUMMY! Well, to stop my craziness from those, I made a homemade 'Tukneneng'..


1 dozen peeled hard boiled quail eggs (or chicken eggs)

1 cup flour

1/2 cup water

few drops of food coloring (orange will do)

salt and pepper to taste

cooking oil


Put the quail eggs in a clean plastic bag/zip lock or in a saucer, with 1/4 cup flour.

Shake them or roll them until the eggs are evenly coated.

Mix all remaining ingredients except cooking oil.

Use a wire whisk or fork, mix it to a smooth batter.

Dump those little eggs to the batter.

Put enough cooking oil for deep frying in a shallow pan. heat it.

Spoon out those eggs from the batter and chuck it in the hot cooking oil.

Wait till it cooks, about a minute or so. until the coating is crispy.

Serve with mixture of vinegar, salt, chili,chopped onions.

Enjoy now your Kwek-Kwek.....
