  4. Heat oil in a pan. When oil is heated enough take your desire amount of mixture, make a ball and carefully drop it in the oil. Put another 4-5 pieces in the oil and fried the both side until it turns to light brown color.(do not hurry during frying otherwise the inner part will remain uncooked)
  5. When frying is done take them out on a paper towel to soak the excess oil.
