  • 500g pork loin or fillet, cut into cubes
  • 1 cup cornflour
  • 1 cup plain flour
  • 2 eggs
  • Salt
  • 1 teaspoon white pepper
  • 1 cup water
  • Oil, for frying

Vegetables

  • 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
  • ½ red onion, thickly sliced
  • ½ red, yellow and green capsicum
  • 2 long red chilli, optional
  • 250g fresh pineapple

To serve, optional

  • 2 spring onion, roughly chopped
  • ½ bunch coriander, roughly chopped
  • Steamed rice

Method

  1. 1.
    In a large bowl, mix together the cornflour, flour and salt. Add the eggs and water, whisking until smooth. (The consistency should be thick like pancake batter.)
  2. 2.
    Add the cubed pork pieces to the batter and coat thoroughly. Let it marinate for 10 minutes at room temperature or up to one hour in the fridge.
  3. 3.
    Add one inch of oil to a medium saucepan or deep fryer and heat to 175˚C. Set aside a wire rack and slotted spoon or mesh strainer.
  4. 4.
    Add the pork to the hot oil in batches, frying for 3-4 minutes until golden and crispy. Remove to the rack with a slotted spoon and repeat for the remaining pork.
