Add the pork strips in batches of two or three to the hot vegetable oil. Cook for three minutes or until golden-brown and cooked through. Remove the strips from the oil with a slotted spoon and drain on kitchen paper.
Heat a separate saucepan and add the honey, ketchup, lemon juice, tomato and mango and cook for two minutes while stirring, until combined and warmed through. Pour the mixture over the pork and stir in the chopped coriander.

To serve, place the pork onto a clean plate and arrange the yam chips alongside.
