  1. Heat oil in a deep-fat fryer or large pan to 180 degrees C.
  2. Place meat on a solid, level surface and pound with a mallet until it is 2.5 to 5mm thick.
  3. Place the flour and breadcrumbs in separate plates. Lightly beat the eggs and add the milk. Lightly season with salt and pepper and put this into another plate.
  4. Coat the meat in flour, patting lightly by hand. Using a fork to hold the meat, dip into the egg mixture and drain slightly.
  5. Next, coat with the breadcrumbs by lightly pressing the crumbs into the meat. When each piece of meat has been prepared, deep fry in cooking oil until golden brown.
