Supreme Pork Chop

This is a recipe I've gotten from 'Hawkers' Fair Simplified' that I've bought from Malaysia. I have to say this dish is very very nice indeed, well deserved title.

Here's the recipe:
600gm pork chops (I've used pork Scotch with marbles of fats on it)

1 tbsp oyster sauce (I substituted with 1 tbsp of chicken granules)
1 tsp salt
1 tsp sesame oil
1 egg
2 tbsp plain flour
1 tbsp custard powder
1 tsp bicarbonate soda
200 ml water
200 gm corn flour, add in prior to deep frying

2 tbsp tomato sauce
1 tbsp chilli sauce
1 tsp worcestershire sauce
1 tsp curry powder
1/2 tbsp sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp light soya sauce
3 tbsp water

Cut pork chop into 1 cm thick and pound with the back of knife till tender. Add in marinade, mix well and season for 30 minutes. Pour away excess marinade and add in corn flour prior to deep frying. Look at the golden hue on the meat after frying, it was just so nice to be eaten just like this.
Leave 1 tbsp of oil in wok, pour in sauce and cook till thick. Add in fried pork chops and mix well. Dish and drain.

My two cents worth, this original recipe sauce was a tad too sour for my liking, so i added in more sugar and i liked the subtle fragrance of the curry powder so i upped that too and the salt. Make the sauce to your liking and enjoy. Caution: it causes you to eat more rice!
