Deep-Frying the Papdi : While preparing papdi, take a pan or kadhayi and add sufficient oil to it. Turn on the flame and let the oil heat. Start putting the papdis one by one in the oil. But add, a few papdis at a time. If you will add the large number of papdis at a time, it can stick to each other and you will not be able to flip the papdis. After that, flip each papdi 4-5 times until it turns light golden brown in color and fry them on a medium flame. When done, take out the papdis with the help of slotted ladle.
