Recipe Notes

Ground pork at Tesco will cost about 50 Baht/500 grams, if you want to control the fat, grind your own but that will affect the price. For 3 servings (not including the eggs as there is a large shift from the price from local vendor to Tesco, for 3 servings, this is about 52 cents per serving, slightly more with the eggs, but well under $1, always go with a local vendor.

Instructions
  1. If using fresh hard boiled quail eggs, peel those and place in a shallow bowl. If using canned canned eggs, drain, rinse, and place in a bowl. Add the 1 tablespoon of soy sauce and mix together. Set aside and marinate for 15 minutes.
  2. If using canned mushrooms, drain and rinse those, and set them aside. If using fresh mushrooms, steam those to precook them, then set those aside.
  3. In a bowl, mix together the sauce ingredients, and in a measuring cup, mix together the thickening ingredients.
  4. Heat a wok or large pan with about 1/2 inch of cooking oil, while the oil is heating, take a toothpick and poke each egg a few times through the white into the yolk. The reason for this is you are going to fry the eggs in hot oil, the pricks from the toothpick should reduce the chances of an egg bursting. When the oil is hot, add the eggs and fry for a few minutes, stirring them as well until golden brown. Remove the eggs and drain.
  5. Pour out the oil from the wok or pan, and return 2 tablespoons of oil back to the pan, heat and when hot, saute the spring onion until fragrant.
  6. Add the mushrooms and the sauce to the pan and stir fry for 2-3 minutes.
  7. Stir in the thickener then the eggs. Stir to mix together and cook until the sauce thickens. Remove from heat.
  8. Serve as is as a side dish or serve with steamed vegetables for the light main dish.
Recipe Notes

I will price this when I pick up a can of mushrooms, for now I will say low cost.

  3. Add 1 chili (both halves) to each jar. Place a wedge or two of onion in each jar.
  4. Pour the cooled brine into each jar, pack in more eggs as needed and push them down into the liquid so they are covered. Place lids on the jars and set in the fridge for 3 to 5 days, then the eggs are ready to be enjoyed.

This is a common street food in Bangkok sold as a snack. This is going to be written as 5 eggs per skewer, and one to two skewers would be an appetizer or snack. If you do not have fresh quail eggs, in the states you can buy these canned in most Asian markets. I made these on 3 Jun 2018, nothing hard about this but it does time if making a lot, I used about 42 eggs for this. If you do not know how to hard boil fresh quail eggs, a link to that is in the Recipe Notes. Link to the shortcut is listed in the Recipe Notes section.

Ingredients
For Each Skewer
To Fry
  • lard or cooking oil, as needed, OR make from a shortcut
Servings: skewer
Instructions
  1. Place a wonton wrapper on your work surface with a corner pointed towards you. Dip your finger in a small bowl of water and all 4 edges of the wrapper, place a quail egg on the wrapper.
  2. Fold the corner closest to you over the egg away from you, then roll the egg away from until you see the corners overlapped.
  3. Take the left and right corners and fold them one at a time over the egg as well, so they overlap. Place on a skewer, running the skewer through the corners overlapped, as seen in this photo. I folded the left corner first, then right corner, gives a nice uniform appearance.
  4. Repeat with the remaining eggs and wrappers. Using as many skewers, eggs, and wrappers as desired.
  5. Heat a pan with about 1/2 inch of lard or oil (I used homemade lard for this), when hot, add a few skewers at a time, fry to golden brown.
  6. Turn and fry the other side to golden brown. Frying both sides, called a shallow deep fry, takes just 10-20 seconds per side.
  7. Serve with a dipping sauce of your choice.

Quail eggs are a lot smaller than chicken eggs and there is a slightly different method to cook them. Tesco sells quail eggs in cartons of 25 eggs, and can be pricey (Tesco 52 Baht/25 eggs, vice a local vendor for when I bought them, 20 Baht/23 eggs). Buy from the local markets and the egg vendors, and will be sold for x number of eggs per money amount. The common size order you would receive at a market for cooked eggs, either hard boiled or fried is 10, so for this, let's just go with a 'carton' or rather 20 Baht worth, which right now is 23 eggs. I did verify this recipe today, the steps and time are 100% correct. For perfect hard boiled chicken or duck eggs, those links are listed in the Recipe Notes section below.

Ingredients
  • 25 qual eggs local vendor, room temperature
Servings: quail eggs
Instructions
  1. Heat a medium size pot of water to boiling. While that is heating, get a smaller pot out and fill with water and place under the tap so when you run more water in, the overflow will simply go into the sink.
  2. Lower eggs into the water with a large spoon, 3-4 eggs at a time but do not over crowd the pot. At 4 minutes for a hard boiled egg, at 2 1/2 minutes for a soft boiled egg, remove the eggs with a large slotted spoon.
  3. Place eggs the smaller pot and turn on the tap to keep water going into the smaller pot. Cool the eggs like this running the water on them for about 5 minutes or so.
  4. Peel and enjoy. Yes, the inside of quail shells is a light blue.
  5. Uses can be; enjoy as is as snack; cut in half and added to a green or pasta salad; mini deviled eggs; mini Scotch eggs; added to pasta, etc. Photo shows a chicken egg for size comparison, and a hard boiled egg that is perfect.
Recipe Notes

Low cost, quail eggs on average are 20 Baht for 23 eggs from a local vendor, and can be as high as 52 Baht for 25 eggs from Tesco (another reason to buy from local markets).
