Heat oil in deep wok and once it  is hot reduce the flame to medium and pour 1 tbsp mixture in ball shape with help of spoon and palm and deep fry it on low flame till it is golden brown in color from both sides.Keep an eye on vadas while deep frying in order to get even color on all sides of vadas.Fry all the vadas in the same manner.
