    2. In a bowl add cut leaves and all the above ingredients except the soda and make a batter.
    3. See to it that the batter should be the one like you make vadas , it should not be thin otherwise you won't be able to fry the pakoras.
    4. You can add a little water to make it thin. But not very thin remember.
    5. Add 1-1/2 tablespoon of oil in the batter and mix the soda and stir it very well.
    6. Put oil in a kadai and make small balls with hand just the way you fry any pakoras and fry it till crispy brown.
