2. Meanwhile,whisk the Eggs with the Cornflour,add small amounts of water until you reach the consistency of double cream.

3. Heat Groundnut and Sunflower oil in a wok or high sided pan(I did half and half with the oils) this needs to be deep enough that it comes half way up the ribs,alternatively they can be put in a deep fat fryer.DONT BURN THE OIL!!!

4. Coat your ribs individually in the Egg batter and submerge into the oil,they should bubble as soon as they touch the oil,if not then your oil needs to be hotter.Cook until golden each side and cooked through.

5. Remove ribs and leave about 1Tbsp oil in the pan,place ribs on to kitchen roll and allow to drain.

6. Place the ribs back into heated oil,add the ketchup,sugar and pineapple pieces,add some of the tinned pineapple water for extra juice.Leave on a low heat while you do the stir fry.

7. Using a mandolin,peeler or a sharp knife cut the Courgette lengthways to make long thin ribbons set aside on kitchen roll and sprinkle with sea salt(this will drain the moisture out),Slice the Garlic into thin slithers,the same with the Chilli and Spring Onions.Heat oil in a pan and add the garlic to flavour it.

8. When all the moisture has been drawn out of the Courgette turn the heat up until piping hot and add it to the pan along with the Spring onions,Chilli and Sesame seeds.This will take seconds to cook,you want the veg to be al dente.
