Cooking procedure:

To make the batter, mix the cornstarch and baking powder in a big bowl then add in the egg, 1/2 to 3/4 cup of water, and cooking oil to form a thick batter. Add the pork and chicken into the batter stir to so the meat pieces are evenly coated with the batter. In a wok, heat enough cooking oil for deep-frying. Deep-fry the meat pieces in batches for 2 to 3 minutes in medium heat or until they turn to golden brown. Drain on paper towels and keep aside. On same wok, remove excess oil. Now stir fry garlic until fragrant. Add in onion bell pepper and drained pineapple chunks and kinchay, stir-fry for 1 to 2 minutes, remove from wok and keep aside.
