  3. Then, keep stirring the mixture and add the orange juice, plus the cup of water. Let it boil for about 5 minutes and turn off.
  4. Let it cool and now put it in the blender to make the sauce, add the soft drinks, white wine and margarine. Once it is ready and well ground, prepare a pot with oil and fry.
