[Video] Street style: How to cook kwek-kwek

Want to earn extra money?

Nov 08, 2012 13:00 pm

Kwek-kwek is a favorite Filipino street food snack because it is tasty, affordable and filling. The snack is also a great way to earn extra money since it is easy to make and the ingredients are readily available in local markets. Just set up a stand outside your house or an area where many people pass by and you can start your own fledgling food business on the cheap.

 

A stick of kwek-kwek with four pieces of quail eggs usually sells for P10. Yummy.ph contributor Lessie Galindo shows us a version of kwek-kwek to get you started in the video below. Feel free to tweak the recipe according to your tastes since each kwek-kwek stand is known for how they mix their own batter and dips.
