This is my mom's recipe which is very delicious and appetizing served especially with rice. You will definitely be reaching for the second bowl of rice!
Thick spareribs (try to get those with some fatty meat, the ribs should be about 3/4 inches thick)
Garlic (sliced) - about 4 cloves
1 tbsp Soy sauce
1 tbsp Corn flour
For the batter:
2 tbsp water
1 tsbp flour
For the sauce:
1 tbsp white vinegar
2 tbsp ketchup
2 tbsp sugar
Oil for deep-frying
Marinate the spare ribs in the garlic slices, soy sauce and corn flour for over 1 hour. Next, prepare the batter with the water and flour. The batter is rather watery and light, if you increase the quantity of the ribs, just make sure that the ratio of water to flour is 2:1. Dip the spare ribs in the batter and deep-fry till cooked. You may use medium heat after the oil has been throughly heated up. Next, remove the oil from the wok, leaving about 1 tbsp in the wok.
Now, prepare the sauce. Simply mix the white vinegar, ketchup and sugar together. With the remaining oil in the wok, fry the remaining garlic slices until fragrant. Pour in the sauce and allow to boil. Finally, place the deep-fried spare ribs into the wok and stir around until all the sauce is absorbed into the meat. It is imperative not to add water into the sauce. The dish is ready to be served!
