Ingredients to make Bengali Luchi !

  • 2.5 Cups : all purpose flour
  • 2 tbsp : ghee
  • 1/2tsp : salt
  • oil for Deep frying
  • Warm water for kneading

How to make Bengali Luchi !

  1. Sift the flour with salt into a large mixing bowl. Add ghee to the sifted flour and mix till incorporated.
  2. Make a well in the middle and add 1/2 cup of warm water. Gently mix the water and flour and start kneading.
  3. Gradually add more warm water as needed will the dough becomes easy to knead into a dry ball that is firm to touch, but soft and pliable when rolled.
  4. Knead for about 3-4 minutes till you have a smooth dough, like you will need when making poori.
  5. Cover with the dough with a wet muslin cloth and let it rest for 15-20 minutes.
  6. Divide the dough in to about 20 small round balls of equal size. Roll out each portion into a perfect round using a rolling pin that is a 1/4 thick.
  7. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a kadhai placed on medium heat, to begin deep frying the luchi. When the oil is hot, gently slide the rolled out luchi, one by one, into the kadhai. Fry for a minute on either sides, till they are puffy and cooked.
  8. Remove from the oil with a slotted spoon and drain on kitchen towel.
  9. Serve them hot with any Aloo gravy or Chhole like me!

My Tip:

Do not brown the luchi as traditional Luchi are puffed white poori.
