flour... do you think it will work with just normal flour and water? just want to coat some pork for sweet and sour pork but i havent tried it before and only have normal flour... ? or should i just pass on the idea for now?

When I do sweet and sour pork I just toss the marinated pork in cornflour then fry in the wok.

steamylee - you don't need baking powder or self-raising flour- the recipe I have for Sweet and Sour Pork which I haven't used for a while now although I do recall that it was nice and successful too, has only plain/standard/all purpose flour, salt, egg and water for the batter - just ¼ cup flour, ½ tsp salt, 1 egg, 2 tbsp water - these quantities for 225g lean pork cut into 1. 25cm (½") pieces.

Hope that helps. :-))
