  • Take a wok and heat the oil on a high flame for the purpose of deep frying.
  • Before frying the fritters make sure the oil is hot enough so that the fritters don’t stick on the bottom.Turn the heat to medium flame. Then start taking small portions from the batter and drop it gently to the oil.
