Place a large, heavy-based pan over a medium-high heat and fill one third full with vegetable oil. Line a plate with several layers of kitchen paper and set aside.


Mix together all the ingredients for the dipping sauce in a small bowl and set aside.


When the oil is almost hot enough to fry, mix together the dry ingredients for the batter in a shallow bowl. Pour in the sparkling water and mix everything together quickly and briefly, not worrying too much about small lumps.


In batches, dip the prepared vegetables into the batter and carefully drop them into the hot oil. Take care not to overcrowd the pan.


Fry for 2-3 minutes, until crisp but not golden. Then remove from the oil with tongs or a slotted spoon, before draining on the kitchen paper.


Repeat this process until all the vegetables have been used. Serve hot, with the dipping sauce on the side.
