Method

20 to 30 mins
 
Cut the pork into 2 cm cubes.
Mix the soya sauce and cornflour.
Add the pork and allow to marinate for at least 20 minutes.
SAUCE
Prepare the sauce while the meat is marinating. Mix all the ingredients except the dissolved cornflour in a saucepan and bring to the boil.
Add the cornflour mixture and stir until thickened. Season to taste, then remove from the heat.
Heat the sunflower oil for deep-frying.
BATTER
Mix the cake flour and cornflour in a bowl.
Stir in the egg whites and the vegetable oil.
Add enough warm water to form a thick batter (it should drop off the back of a spoon).
Dip the marinated pork cubes in the batter and deep-fry a few cubes at a time.
Once the batter is crisp and golden, remove from the oil and drain on absorbent paper.
Repeat until all the cubes have been deep-fried.
