This is an easy to prepare, tasty, delicious awesome pork ribs dish.
The original recipe uses deep frying method but I have tried with pan frying of meaty pork ribs. The fried pork ribs are tender and blends well with the sweet and sourish sauce. Marinating the ribs does help to tenderise them.You can also use this recipe as filling for steamed whole pumpkin [steaming time - 30 minutes] which I did and it turned out nice.
