1 cup of water

Remove the ball from the saucepan and place it into a mixing bowl, then mix in the eggs until it forms a batter. Add the batter to a pastry bag with a large exit cap attached.

Heat the oil in a deep frying pan, once the heat has reached 360F, begin squeezing out long strips of dough directly into the hot oil, and cook until golden brown.

Remove from hot oil, and blot excess oil off.
