Here’s how to cook Kwek Kwek:

1 1/2 cups All-purpose Flour
1/2 tbsp. Baking Powder
2 tbsp. Anato Powder (atsuete)
1 cup Chicken Broth or water
Cooking Oil

Dipping Sauce:

Sweet chili Sauce


1. Boil the quail eggs for about 6 minutes. Peel off the shells and set aside.

2. In a bowl, pour in the half cup of all-purpose flour. Drop in the hard boiled quail eggs and coat them with the flour. Set aside.

3. In a separate bowl, pour in the remaining 1 cup of all-purpose flour. Then dilute the anato powder in a cup of chicken broth. Pour them into the flour. Whisk until properly incorporated.

4. Then add in the baking powder and season with salt and pepper.

5. One by one drop the flour-coated quail eggs on the mixture. Then coat the eggs thoroughly.

6. Heat some cooking oil in a pan. Using a spoon, scoop the coated quail eggs one by one and fry for about 5 minutes on both sides.

7. Use paper towel to remove excess oil.

Suggested dip:

1. In a bowl, just combine the vinegar, sweet chili sauce, onion, garlic, salt and pepper.


Note from Delish:

The first time I tasted kwek kwek, I just can’t get enough of it. So I decided to try to make it at home. Some are using artificial food color, but I’d rather use anato powder for a healthier option. You can make any dip sauce of your choice as well.
