In the video, you will hear me saying that I am using fresh carrots for this recipe. It takes quite a while to peel and chop the carrots — so if you are pressed for time, you can use frozen mixed vegetables.

I recommend using fresh quail eggs over the quail eggs in cans. It is obvious that fresh eggs tastes better and is more pleasant to eat. When boiling quail eggs, first boil the water then add the eggs piece by piece. Let it boil for 3 ½ minutes. Turn the heat off and leave the eggs in the warm water until the temperature cools down a bit. Easy, isn’t it?
