1. no need to add baking soda to the dough as we are adding sour curds to it, we will get crisp and soft stuff as it is.
if u add soda, there will be more consumption of oil and the oil will remain on the bonda as it is.

2. heat oil in a medium flame, do not keep full flame becoz once u start dropping the mixture, within seconds it will become dark brown in colour and there are chances of the dough not boiled inside thoroughly.
