Ingredients

Method

1

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.

2

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

3

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.

4

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

5

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.

6

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