tukneneng / kwek-kwek recipe!

for the interest of those (like me) who are looking for some lead as to how to make those interestingly orange-tinged street food:

kwek-kwek (or tukneneng, depending on the eggs you're using)
ingredients:
1 dozen peeled hard boiled quail eggs (or chicken eggs)
1 cup flour
1/2 cup water
few drops of food coloring (orange?)
salt and pepper to taste
cooking oil

instructions:
1. put the quail eggs in a clean plastic bag/zip lock, with 1/4 cup flour. shake em until eggs are evenly coated.
2. mix all remaining ingredients exept cooking oil. used a wire whisk or fork, mix it to a smooth batter.
3. dump those little eggs to the batter.
4. put enough cooking oil for deep frying in a shallow pan. heat it.
5. spoon out those eggs from the batter and chuck it in the hot cooking oil.
6. wait till it cooks, about a minute or so. until the coating is crispy.
7. serve with sweet gravy or vinegar.

hapy eating!

Just wanted to add something about the recipe. Although food coloring can be used, what is usually used is atsuete poweder. This gives it both color and flavor.
