  • 10 pieces of Balut (boiled for few hours and peeled)
  • 1 whole Tofu (sliced in big cubes)
  • 1 large white onion (chopped finely)
  • 6-8 cloves of garlic (minced and chopped)
  • 4 tablespoon vegetable oil

  • 3 pieces of Laurel (bay leaves)
  • 3 pieces of chili or ½ teaspoon of chili powder
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar

  1. Right after boiling the Balut eggs, the next step is to put their juices on the bowl and peel them before putting them as well.
  2. Afterwards, preheat the saucepan in medium fire before sautéing the garlic and onion in the vegetable until golden brown.
  3. Fry the Tofu for about 5 minutes before frying the peeled eggs slowly also. After 3-5 minutes, add the vinegar, soy sauce, water and the set aside Balut juice. Stir gently to balance the color, and then add the oyster sauce, chili, laurel, pepper, brown sugar and salt to taste.
  4. Let boil and simmer for at least 10-minutes before placing the cooked dish on a large platter.
