In the event that the little piece of mixture comes up progressively and consistently on top, the oil is sufficiently hot to broil. In the event that it comes up excessively fast, oil is excessively hot. In the event that it settles down at lower part of kadai or comes up leisurely, the oil isn’t hot enough for searing omapodi.
17. At the point when the oil is sufficiently hot, straightforwardly press holding the sev producer on top of the oil and let the sev straightforwardly fall in the oil. while squeezing pivot in a concentric circle from the middle to outwards like making a Chakli. try not to stuff the kadai with omapodi.

21. At the point when the oil quits sizzling, keep on broiling for a few additional seconds till the omapodi are brilliant and fresh. Turn over depending on the situation while searing. Try not to break the sev while broiling as then it turns out to be additional work to eliminate the little bits of sev from the oil. So sear the whole round molded omapodi as one piece and don’t break it.
22. When done then eliminate omapodi with an opened spoon or a sifter spoon depleting off the additional oil.
23. Put them on kitchen paper towels. Sear the excess omapodi similarly.
24. When the omapodi are cooled, then place them in a hermetically sealed compartment or box. Prior to adding to the combination, break the omapodi.
