1. In a medium sized bowl, combine baking soda and 2 cups of flour and sieve. Keep aside.
2. In a large sized bowl, combine ¼ cup oil, ¼ cup sugar, 1 teaspoon orange peel, eggs and orange juice. Mix well and beat using a whisk till well combined.
3. Gradually add sieved flour and keep beating till well combined. The mixture will now resemble a thick batter consistency.

6. Cook on a medium flame for 8 to 10 minutes or till it reaches 1 to 2 string consistency.

8. Remove off flame, cover and keep aside.

9. In a deep fat fryer or 3 inch depth heavy bottomed sauce pan, heat oil for frying.
10. Portion rested dough into 10 equal 2 inch round balls. Use flour while doing this so that dough doesn-€™t stick to your hands.
