  7. Apply some oil on the balls, roll each into a circle of about 3-4 inches.
  8. Heat oil for deep frying in a kadai or pan. the oil has to become hot.
  9. Drop a small piece of the dough into the oil and if it comes up steadily from the bottom, it means the oil is ready for the luchi to be fried.
