  • Check the mould by squeezing the dough in a plate, and if its okay then continue with the hot oil..
  • If the dough is too thick sev will break, if so sprinkle few drops of water and knead again and use..
  • Heat the oil in high, and reduce the flame to low before squeezing the sev..
  • Use a hand towel to cover ur hand which is holding the mould over oil, or use oven gloves.
