  4. Add eggs and seasonings.
  5. Mix well and let rest for 10-20 minutes in fridge.
  6. Pour 1 inch of oil into a deep frying pan and heat on medium high flame
  7. Using two spoons, drop heaping tablespoons into the hot oil and press down with backside of the spoon. Be careful not to burn yourself!
  8. Fry until golden brown on each side then rest on a plate/tray covered with paper towel to absorb the excess oil. If cooking in large batches, lay on a wire rack and keep warm in the oven set at a low heat.
