Kwek Kwek (Fried quial eggs)

It was rainy afternoon, kids and I are bored and we wanted something different for snack since we always had Pan de sal and sometimes other kind of bread for afternoon snack. My eldest son loves egg, so much that he would ask for it almost everyday and any time of the day. Whenever we're about to eat, he would ask for egg which we don't allow. One kind of egg he loves is Quail eggs (Itlog ng Pugo). I always boil it and let him eat it that way. But this afternoon, I wanted to make it special so I decided to cook Kwek Kwek (Quail eggs with batter then fried, usually orange in color). This is very common and you can see this being sold on streets here in the Philippines. The actual procedure is very easy and everybody can do this. It's something you can do to bond with your kids because they can join you in creating this dish. Very simple yet very delicious! Not only you can enjoy this recipe but also spending some quality time with your loved ones is priceless. If you don't have quail eggs, you can also use any other kind of eggs available in your area.

10 pcs Quail Eggs
1 cup Flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 cup water
orange food color (powder or liquid)
minced garlic (according to your preference)
oil for frying

 Boil quail eggs for 5 minutes then peel off skin. Put salt, pepper and flour then set aside. On a different bowl, put together flour, baking powder, water, food color, salt and pepper then mix until well blended using a whisk. Heat oil in a frying pan then one by one, drop the egg with batter mixture and cook for 5 minutes. While waiting for the egg to cook, using another pan, put the remaining water, garlic, soy sauce, sugar, pepper, salt and vinegar. Whisk until it thickens. Serve together with the Fried Quail eggs. Enjoy!
