Luchi is an unleavened and deep-fried Indian flatbread made exclusively by the people of states in the eastern region of India. Popularly known as 'Bengali-style Luchi', the dough is made with all-purpose flour, hence its pristine white appearance. Usually reserved for a special occasion, it is often paired with Bengali Mutton Roast or Kosha Mangsho, Chana Dal or Bengali Cholar Dal or Potato Curry or Niramish Aloo Dum.
Take the flour in a mixing bowl and mix the salt in it.
Now, add the 2 tablespoons of ghee or oil and rub it in.
Make a well at the centre and add water. Start kneading the dough.
Once it comes together nicely and becomes smooth, divide it into 15 equal portions
Heat the ghee or oil for frying the luchis. Meanwhile, roll the dough balls into thin discs. It should be as thin as wonton wraps.
Start frying once you have 5 luchis rolled out. Cover the rest of the dough with a damp cloth
Repeat the process till you have all the luchis ready. Serve hot.
