Instructions
  1. in a bowl or a large plate/tray first add the flour, ghee and salt.
  2. add 1 or 2 tbsp water and mix everything with your hands or with a spatula.
  3. then add about ½ cup of water and begin to knead the flour.
  4. add water as required and knead very well. the dough should be soft and smooth.
  5. cover the dough with a moist kitchen napkin and let it rest for minimum 30 minutes at room temperature.
  6. make lemon sized balls from the dough and cover them with the moist napkin.
  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 in the oil and if it comes up steadily from the bottom, it means the oil is ready for the luchi to be fried.
  10. gently drop the dough circle into the hot oil. the luchi will begin to puff up.
  11. gently nudge with a spoon to help in the complete puffing up of the luchi.
  12. when one side has become creamish and the oil has stopped sizzling, turn over and fry the other side.
  13. remove and drain luchi on kitchen towels for the extra oil to be soaked.
  14. serve luchi hot with aloor dum, chola dal or any bengali vegetable or lentil curry.
