My daughter loves eating luchi, so I prepare it quite often. Luchi served with curry and sandesh is one of the popular breakfast platter of Bengal. We don’t get Bengal famous Sandesh here, but this time I prepared it at home so we had a Bong’s style breakfast which was pure bliss! Sharing the easy recipe of Luchi here. Do let me know which is your favourite breakfast platter.
Luchi / Bengali style Deep fried Flatbread / Maida Poori (Puri)
Maida – 11/2 cup
Ghee or refined oil – 2 tablespoon
Salt to Taste
Refined oil for deep frying
Take maida in a bowl and add salt and ghee. Mix them well and add required water to make a dry dough. Dough should not be sticky at the same time it has to soft. When you feel the dough is not sticking to your palm, then its ready. Now cover it with a damp cloth for an hour. Now divide the dough into small balls. The amount should give a yield of 12 to 15 balls.Roll each balls using little oil up to 3 to 4 inch diameter circles. Heat oil for deep frying. When the wok is smoking hot reduce the flame and put in the rolled poori. Press the luchi using spatula and when once side is light brown and fluffy, flip the other side and fry till light brown. Take it out from oil and repeat the procedure for remaining luchis.
