Blend lychee with syrup until fine. Combine with egg yolks, sugar and oil in a mixing bowl. Fold in the flour, ground almond and chopped almonds until batter is formed.

Beat egg whites with lemon juice/ cream of tartar until mixture forms soft peaks. Gradually add in sugar, beat until stiff peaks form. Gently fold beaten egg white foam into yolk batter until blended.
