1. Prepare the ingredients according to the list.
2. Heat a pan and add the coarse salt. Heat it till it begins to turn grey.
3. Transfer it into a mortar and allow cooling.
4. To this add Chinese five spice powder, white pepper. Crush it with a pestle and keep aside.
5. Cut the pork chops into small thin bite- size pieces. Retain some meat on the bones and retain those. Transfer them into a zip lock plastic bag.
6. MARINADE: In a bowl, mix sherry vinegar, soy sauce, brown sugar, sesame oil, ½ teaspoon of prepared salt, garlic and chilli. Mix them well.
7. Pour the marinade into the zip lock bag with the meat. Shake it well to coat the meat.
8. Marinate it for a minimum of 1 hour. Longer marinating will enhance the taste.
9. In a larger bowl, mix flour, corn starch, ½ teaspoon of the prepared salt. Keep aside.
10. Take a large wok or pan, heat peanut oil to 350 degrees for deep frying.
11. Meanwhile, dredge the pork pieces into the flour mix and keep on a platter after shaking off excess flour.
12. Deep fry the pork pieces slowly till crisp golden brown, in batches while waiting to heat the oil after every batch.
13. Each batch should take around 4 minutes each. The bones will take longer.

16. Add the scallions, chilli pepper and garlic. Sauté till tender and return the fried pork.
