Flour ( 1/2 bread flour + 1/2 plain flour, if bread flour has too much gluten use all plain flour)
baking powder,doubel action, 1 tsp
alum, 1 tsp ( level)
baking soda, 1 tsp
salt, 1 tsp

Method:
1. Place ingredients of ammonim bicarbonate, baking soda, alum and salt in a mixing bowl; add water and stir until the ingredients have dissolved. Add flour and mix well; let stand for 15-20 minutes. Use hand to take some dough from around edges and drop into the center of the dough; let stand for 15-20 minutes. Continue to drop the dough in the center of the bowl 3 or 4 times until the dough is elastic and smooth. Turn the dough over and lightly coat the surface with oil so that the dough will stay moist. Let it stand for 1 hour. Remove the dough from the bowl and place it on a sheet of plastic wrap; wrap the dough and form it into a rectangular shape. Let it stand for 4 hours. If a large batch is made, cut the dough into several 1.25 lbs. pieces, then wrap each piece in a sheet of plastic wrap.
2. Unwrap the dough. Use a rolling pin to roll the dough and strech it into a long strip. Roll the dough into a rectangular shape, 3” wide and 0.1” thick. Crosswise cut the rectangular shaped dough into strips, 0.25” wide. Put two strips on top of each other; Use a thin rod (skewer) or the back of a cleaver to press lengthwise in middle of the strips; this will attach them securely to each other. Follow the same step for the other strips. Heat the oil for deep-frying; pick up a strip from the ends and gently stretch it to make it longer. Carefully drop it into the hot oil and turn it over
