Paired with a steamed rice this is satisfying and a great light midweek meal.

In a medium bowl whisk together the batter ingredients. Leave to rest for 20-30minutes.
After batter has rested, add pork and coat well.
Heat oil in wok.
Fry pork in batches until golden brown. It should only take 2-3 minutes per batch.


Drain on kitchen towel.

In a dry non stick pan lightly roast the sesame seeds until they have browned slightly. Put aside to use as garnish.




Honey Sauce
