It is simple to prepare, should you want another way to cook eggplant this one is recommended. If you hate the mess of grilling you could also boil the eggplant. But a grilled eggplant gives it a better taste and aroma.
Once the sauteed grilled eggplant is transferred to a plate, you can add a beaten egg and mix the two together. And there goes your poqui poqui!
For a non-Ilocano, the name of this food will definitely make an impression for a green minded person. No one can exactly tell about the origin of its name but once tasted, poqui poqui (puqui puqui or puki puki) is a sure hit.
