    Cut pork into small chunks. Combine salt and pepper with cornflour. Coat each piece well and shake to remove excess flour.

    Heat oil in a small pot (don’t leave this unattended). To test when temperature is hot enough, sprinkle a small amount of flour in – it should sizzle immediately.

    Set up a plate with paper towel next to the pot then gently lower pork into hot oil, using tongs or a slotted spoon. Cook until browned then remove from oil and set aside to drain. Continue until all pork is cooked then remove the oil from the heat and cool.
