This is a recipe for Sweet & Sour Pork given to my mother in the 1970’s by one of her work friends who was from Sri Lanka, l don’t know where she got it from or how original it is, but it is the sweet & sour pork recipe my family has always made and enjoyed and l prefer it to the Chinese red sauce style sweet and sour pork dish at Chinese restaurants.
