I just made these and they were so dry that I had to drown them in ketchup. The ones in the picture were definitely fried in oil. I did not over-knead them as I was worried they would be dry. If you are going to go ahead and deep fry them then why would you go to the trouble of kneading and rolling the dough. Traditional dipping in batter is easier. I was just hoping they would be a healthier alternative. I won't make these again.
