The only part of this recipe that takes any real time is marinating the pork. Choose to marinate just for an hour or overnight the choice is yours. The longer you marinate the more flavoursome the pork.

After the pork has marinated you can simply toss each piece of pork in the coating and pop straight into hot oil and deep fry. 

Work in batches so that you don’t over-crowd the pan. Try not to sample too much while frying. haha!
