  1. Heat the oil in a deep fryer to 180°C/350°F.
  2. Use a knife to slice SPAM® into about 18 thin strips.
  3. Place half the cornflour on a plate. Place the remaining cornflour in a small bowl with the egg whites and 60ml/4 tbsp cold water. Lightly whisk until just frothy.
  4. When the oil is hot, dip the strips of SPAM® a few at a time first in the cornflour, then in the frothy egg mix. Drop into the hot oil and fry for 2 mins or until pale golden.
  5. Drain on kitchen paper and keep warm.
  6. Repeat with the remaining SPAM® and batter.
  7. Serve immediately with chilli dipping sauce.
