Tokneneng is deep fried pre-boiled chicken egg with crispy orange coating.

The orange coating is a mixture of flour, baking powder, food coloring (orange), and small amount of water. In a bowl, mixed all the ingredients well and evenly coat each egg before you deep fry.

Place them in a bowl with paper towel to absorb excess oil.

Serve with your favorite vinegar and chili dip.

Tokneneng is simply the bigger version of kwek-kwek (quail egg), also a popular street food. At least a couple of mobile carts selling tokneneng, kwek-kwek, fishballs and squidballs are found within the neighborhood, they also carry the best dip sauce for tokneneng. ­čÖé
