  • 6 cherry tomato to serve

  1. Prepare the pork. Make small cuts at 2cm(0.78inch) intervals along the edge of the pork in order to avoid the pork curling up when its fried.

  10. Heat the deep frying oil in a deep frying pan or deep fryer 338F. At the same time line kitchen paper on a wire rack on a tray. 
  11. When the oil reaches the temperature, gently put one pork in. Cook one at a time.

  13. Drain the deep fried pork on the kitchen paper-lined wire rack. Cook the rest of crumbed pork in the same way.
