Pooqui-pooqui with Ensaldang Repolyo
I don’t know if I have to consider the title of this post explicit or not. But the name of this dish really exists in Ilocos Region. I saw this recipe from Chef Boy Logro’s “Idol sa Kusina”.

Ingredients: Grilled Eggplant, tomatoes, onions and eggs

You will need:
4 pcs eggplant, long variety, grilled, peeled and chopped
4 pcs tomatoes, chopped
1 medium sized onion, chopped
3 pcs egg, beaten
Salt and pepper to taste

Here’s how to do it:
Saute onion and tomatoes then add the eggplant. Pour beaten egg and keep on stirring until egg is cooked. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Serve with either steamed or fried rice.

  1. I cook this (but I cant replicate my late dad's - he is from Ilocos)!

  2. Just this evening, we had a similar version of the veggie, together with chicken tandouri (oops, I'm not sure of the spelling). And nakakagana lalo na if you eat with sili!

  3. This is looks really good and I'm sure it taste equally delicious.:) Thanks for sharing the recipe

  4. Shucks! We had eggplant the other day but too bad we don't have tomatoes. I will try this one. I love eggplant. Abed will not love this though hahaha!

  5. i am starting to miss ilocano fare. I love this dish that is so similar to ensalada.

  6. that looks like ensalada with a twists. i remembered tasting that a few years back. i am starting to miss ilocano dishes.

  7. I will try this today! I have always been on the lookout for simple vegetable dishes.
