Ingredients edit

Equipment edit

Procedure edit

  1. Gradually but vigorously whisk the water into the flour. The wet mixture should be thick but flow like a pancake batter.
  2. Dip the eggs in the batter to coat them completely.
  3. Heat several inches of vegetable oil in a deep pot. You're aiming for about 350°F (180°C).
  4. Add the coated eggs to the hot oil, and deep fry until very light golden and cooked through. Remove from the oil and drain off any excess.
  5. Serve with spicy vinegar.

Notes, tips, and variations edit

  • The chicken egg variant is called tokneneng.
