    • Knead the dough softly, if dough goes sticky use some floor to dust and roll the balls..
    • The balls will double in size, once they completely cooked, so make sure about the ball size..
    • Adjust the sugar to your taste, sugar i mentioned is a minimum amount which will not taste too sweet.
    • Put the flame in medium to cook the fries. 
    • put a very mild cut, once they cook, they will give a big deep look..
