1.In a large bowl, combine self-raising flour, spice and pepper. Make a well in the centre and whisk in soda water and egg until smooth.
2.Heat oil in a wok on medium high, until a drop of batter sizzles as soon as it’s added.
3.Meanwhile, dust chicken pieces in cornflour, shaking off excess. Working in 2 batches, dip chicken in batter, wipe excess off and gently lower into hot oil. Deep-fry, turning with a slotted spoon, for 2-3 minutes, until crisp and cooked through. Drain on paper towel.
4.In a small saucepan, combine honey and peanut oil. Stir on medium heat for 1 minute, until runny. Pour honey mixture over hot chicken, tossing to coat well. Serve with iceberg wedges and lime cheeks.
