  8. Keep the small circle in a plate.
  9. Heat oil in a pan and add the kadbolis to it.
  10. Stir now and then to make sure it is fried on both sides. Fry till golden brown, else it won't cook from inside.
  11. Fry on low- medium heat.
  12. Note: When you put in the oil you can see lots of bubbles coming through, But when its nearly done the bubbles will stop. So you can know now that its done.
  13. Remove on kitchen paper towel, I used the wooden basket so that the air flows through it and cools fast.
  14. When done and cooled store in a air tight container.
