I would like to thanks to blessing_200 for posting a recipe of kwek kwek mix. I was able to make my own kwek kwek at home after i read his post.
Kwek kwek consist of boiled egg coated with a mixture of flour. It is deep fried immediately after coating. The flour mix could be spicy by adding variety of ingredients. Based from my observation, most vendor make a plain coating. Taste is compensated by a spicy sauce.
The following are the ingredients according to him:
2 cups of 1st class flour
1 tbsp baking powder
3/4 cup water
food color (egg yellow)
In a bowl, mix flour, salt and ground pepper. Add water little by little until the mixture is tacky. Taste the mixture and adjust according to your preference. Coat the boiled chicken or pugo eggs using two spoons. Drop immediately in hot cooking oil. Fry until golden brown.
I never like adding food color.
Mine turned brown easily because I added sugar to flour mix. I also added more pepper.
Eat kwek kwek with the favorite sauce of choice.
