Step 3: Now heat some cooking oil in a pan or wok and fry the marinated pork. The amount of time you need to fry it for will depend on how thick you cut it, but make sure its cooked all the way through, and you want it golden brown on the outside. Whilst frying, scoop out any bits of turmeric and set them aside for use as a topping later.
