- For pork: put pork in a bowl with bicarbonate of soda and soy sauce and toss together. Cover and leave for 15 minutes to tenderise. Sift rice flour and cornflour into a bowl with a pinch of salt and make a well in the centre. Add egg and sparkling water and mix with chopsticks until just combined. Leave to rest for 15 minutes.
- For sweet and sour sauce: put pineapple juice, tomato sauce, sugar and 200ml water in a large saucepan and bring to the boil. Reduce heat to medium. Mix cornflour with 2 tbs water to make a smooth paste. Add to pan and stir well. Cook for 2 minutes or until thickened slightly. Stir in capsicums, pineapple and onion, remove from heat and allow to cool.

Add sausage and cook for 2 minutes or until lightly coloured. Add prawns, chicken and rice and cook, stirring, for 3 minutes or until heathed through.
