  1. Hi,

    I have made a similar recipe before and it was rather crumbly. Do you use a bit of oil when mixing the ingredients to help bind them together?

  2. Mayuri,
    No, I did not use oil. Try adjusting the usage of breadcrumbs(the mixture should be more like dough).Avoid deep frying. Hope this helps!

  3. Loved making this one!! Enjoyed eating them too :)
