    I love these and did not have any problems, but sometimes because of the type of flour and the moisture in the air the dough can be too dry, go ahead and add a drop more soymilk just to get it to stick together.

    I should use only 1/4C of oilve oil for the frying? That sounds great!!

    • I do want to mention that I was using a small deep pot, you might need more to make it deep enough if the pot is bigger.

    how can olive oil be heated to a high heat w/o smoking?

    • The smoke point is not as high as others, but can still get high enough to fry without smoking. Smoking tells you it is too high.
