Apa artinya "hurketekuk"? What does that word mean?

Hi, my Indonesian class has been studying a play called Sampek-Engtay, there's a word I came across that isn't in any of my dictionaries or google translate. There's a sentence where the dalang says "Siapuuh... hurketekuk!" What does this mean? Thanks!

    In my opinion ,
    There is no one formal sentence "hurketekuk" in indonesian language.
    but it just a mimic and sound for calling a turtledove.
    so , dalang calls the turtledove with imitating it sound like "hurketekuk" . .
