Sate telur puyuh is a Javanese snack or side dish consisting of quail eggs braised in spices, and then threaded on a satay stick.


  • 25 hard boiled quail eggs, peeled
  • 6 shallots, peeled, chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled, chopped
  • 1 tsp coriander seeds
  • 1 salam leaf
  • 2 thin slices galangal
  • 2 tbsp shaved palm sugar
  • 3 tbsp sweet soy sauce (kecap manis)
  • 1 tbsp tamarind extract
  • Salt to taste
  • 500 ml water
  • 5 bamboo skewers


  1. Blend into a fine paste: shallots, garlic and coriander seeds.
  2. In a small cooking pot, put the eggs, blended spices, salam leaf, galangal, palm sugar, sweet sauce, tamarind extract, salt and water.
  3. Bring all the ingredients to boil over medium high heat, then reduce the flame to medium.
  4. Continue cooking until all the liquid has almost evaporated, and the eggs are nicely glazed and brown.
  5. Cool off the eggs and thread with bamboo skewers.

  • The palm sugar and sweet soy sauce create a nice brown color to the dish, but if you don’t like sweet dishes, feel free to adjust the amount according to your preference.
