- Next is to thread your hot dogs on wooden skewers (preferably the wooden Popsicle sticks) the plastic sticks might melt when frying.
- In a skillet pan or frying pan heat your vegetable oil on medium heat.
- Stir the batter, in other to make it easier; transfer the batter into a drinking glass cup. You can now dip the hot dog into the glass cup and then pull out from batter; this method helps give a uniform coating to the hotdog.

Ensure all sides are properly fried, and then remove from heat into a sieve lined with a paper towel. The frying process should be done in batches until all threaded hotdogs are exhausted.
