Bring the water and sugar to the boil and reduce the heat. Reduce, uncovered, to a syrup-like consistency then leave to cool. Stir in the lime juice and fish sauce. Mix in the chilli, garlic and carrot.

Shortly before frying, dust the vegetable strips with a little flour.

Combine the egg yolk and water in a bowl. Mix the flour and salt together, add and stir well. Continue processing the dough immediately. Pre-heat the oven to 60°C. Warm the platter.

Shallow fry: Fill the frying pan to a depth of approx. 3 cm with oil and heat to 180 °C. Individually run the vegetables through the batter, using a wooden skewer, and drain off any excess. Shallow-fry the vegetables for approx. 1 1/2 mins. on each side until light brown and place on kitchen paper to remove the excess oil. Keep the vegetables warm, holding the oven door ajar with a ladle handle.

Serve the sweet chilli dip alongside.
