    To make the sweet pickled cucumber, combine the vinegar, water and sugar in a medium saucepan over low heat. Cook, stirring, for 2 minutes or until the sugar dissolves. Increase heat to high and bring to the boil. Cook for 5 minutes or until the syrup thickens. Set aside for 10 minutes to cool slightly. Transfer to a bowl and add the cucumber, chilli and kaffir lime leaves. Cover with plastic wrap and place in the fridge for 1 hour to chill.
