- Step 4: Gently pick up the elongated fafda from the board, and keep it in a separate plate. Grease the plate before placing the fafdas. Cover it with a clean cloth to prevent it from getting dry.
- Step 5: Take a Kadhai, heat oil over a high flame to deep fry the fafdas.
- Step 6: After it is hot, reduce the flame to low - medium. Slowly slowly add the fafdas from one side. Don’t overcrowd the Kadai with fafdas.
- Step 7: Cook one side till it turns crispy. When it’s done, flip the fafdas carefully using a spoon and fry till it turns crispy.
- Step 8: Don’t fry the fafdas till it turns brown. As soon as your fafdas turns crispy, remove it and drain the excess oil.

- You can also use a rolling pin to flatten the fafdas. After rolling, cut 1-inch strips using a kitchen knife.
- Fafdas gets fried very quickly. Do not let it get too brown.
