Poqui Poqui dish looks funny and even sounds funny (for Filipino’s it even sounds funnier) but don’t be deceived by its looks as this is one amazing recipe
- 4 Asian eggplants
- 2 large tomatoes, chopped
- 1 red onion, finely chopped
- 4 cloves garlic
- 4 eggs, lightly beaten
- freshly ground black pepper
- Cook Asian eggplants over a charcoal grill or just on stove tops until skin is charred. Let it cool then peel off the skin, roughly chop then set aside.
- In a pan add oil then sauté garlic and onions.
- Add tomatoes and cook until soft.
- Add eggplants then cook for 3-4 minutes while occasionally stirring.
- Season with salt and pepper then pour the beaten eggs, cook for 2 minutes or until eggs are set and still moist.
- Serve while hot, BTW I love this with sukang Ilocos (Vinegar)
I think I’ve had this dish oh long time ago. I love the name because you get twice the poqui in one serving and I love it when an Asian eggplant turns into poqui poqui. Ha ha ha, sorry I can’t help it. Joke lang po.
Lol youre funny!
I love eggplants! Haven’t had this, I might give this a go! 🙂 Thanks for sharing!
My mom is from Vigan and this dish is one of my favorites! I just made some the other day. Cheers!
This is a far more delicious version, of the poor mans caviar (as eggplant is often named.) I love BBQ-ing the delicious flesh of those fruit and in combining it with eggs & your amazing Asian flavours here, it would be king amongst any dishes! Love the idea of the vinegar too!
This looks great and delicious and I can actually have this, Thanks
I have family in Baguio City! I love this dish!
I wonder if I’m the only one who thought if the first p was an h it would come out as hokey pokey?
I would LOVE this dish because any vegetables with a bit of garlic and cuddled with egg sounds wonderful.
Bwahaha…Favorite din yan dito sa amin. I’m sure favorite mo yan, Ray? Joke lang din. 🙂
Ooh that really would be gooey and soft and wonderfully flavoursome Ray!
