 6) When the oil becomes lukewarm, then take out 1 tablespoon of oil from this oil and put it in the batter, then add sugar, baking soda and lemon juice to the batter and mix it once.

 7) When the oil is medium hot, then with the help of hand or two spoons lift a lemon sized batter and put it in the hot oil.

 8) Put as many gotas/pakoras as you can in the pan, keep the gas on medium flame.

 9) After a while, flip them on the other side. In this way, fry the pakodas while turning them till they become light golden brown.

 ★★ Tips :-

 1) Do not keep the flame of gas too high while frying the gota otherwise the pakoras will be crispy from outside and remain raw from inside.

2) Do not flip the gota immediately after putting it in the oil, otherwise it may break, after putting it in the oil, flip it after about 40-50 seconds.

3) Keep the batter thick for gota, if the batter is thin then the pakodas will become oily.

 4) Add sugar, soda and lemon juice to the batter at the same time when the pakodas are to be fried.

 5) Keep the size of the methi na  gota (fenugreek fritters) small, it will swell up after frying.
