  9. Vineela,
    You have a lovely blog,I noticed that you used a traditional iron kadai for deep fry the chicken pakoda, which is a good thing.But dint your kadai dangle on the electric stove? How did u manage? Yours tips would be of great help.I too have a kadai but i am too afraid to use it on my electric stove as it keeps dancing.

  10. Hai Praveena I prefer iron kadai.For me its best for deep frying.Sometimes my kadai also dangle but i balance the kadai and be little carefull.We have to place the kadai at the centre so that it can help.But be carefull while deep frying.
