  • Meanwhile in a steel vessel heat oil for deep frying.
  • Now fill the batter in the pressing device, once the oil is hot enough press the batter into the oil which falls as noodle shape into the oil.
  • Turn the sides and take out the sev into the tissue paper to remove excess oil.


  • Make sure not to add excess water while preparing the batter. It becomes soggy and absorbs more oil, hence will not be crispy enough.
  • Always note that the oil is hot enough for frying.
