Add water to saucepan and bring to the boil. Blanch the wings for 2 minutes, then remove and set aside. Blanch the carrot for 5 minutes or until soft.

Heat the oil in a deep pan over high heat. Add the chicken wings, four at a time, and deep-fry for 2 minutes or until brown and crispy. Remove and set aside.
