Mixing hot oil gives a crispier pakoras and also prevents sogginess.
The temperature of the oil has to be correct while frying. The oil should not be too hot or cold. If it is hot, then the outside of the pakoras will get fried but the inside will be under cooked. If it is not hot, then the pakoras will absorb more oil .
To check the readiness of the oil, drop a small ball of dough (say around the size of the lemon seed). If the dough ball raises above the oil in a couple of seconds, the oil is hot enough to drop in the pakodas.
Don’t overcrowd pakodas while dropping in hot oil .This will make them soft as well absorb more oil.
