- STEP 2Add oil to a large frying pan, enough to easily cover the base of the pan. When the oil is hot, test with a teaspoon of the mix, it should sizzle and bubble. Spoon in the mixture, making four equal portions and using up all the mixture. Trying to make sure they don't run into each other. Fry until light brown approx 2 mins, keep checking, turn over and repeat.
- STEP 3To test if they are cooked, press gently down in the centre, they should not give, if soft or squidgy cook for a bit longer. Best served warm but can be eaten cold.
