a) To get a non sticky dough add 1 or 2 tsp of flour if needed.
b) Temperature of the oil is very important while frying.If fried in too hot oil then the inside will be uncooked & the outer will become brown fast.So each time fry in medium hot oil.
c) Some add a pinch of turmeric powder for colour.
