Luchi is a Bengali cuisine, white in color with golden spots and so soft in texture. You can call it as maida poori. Usually, poori will prepare with atta, salt and water. Luchi will prepare with maida, ghee, salt and water. The ghee gives very soft texture even it cools. I prepared Luchi with Aloo rasedhar which is Uttar Pradesh cuisine. The combo was a great hit at my home. Even I don’t know how many luchis were going into my tummy J. It was so addictive, I just sprinkle sugar over the luchi and then roll and enjoyed it… Yummmmyyyyyy…

Luchi will go well with chole masala too and its similar to bhatura. Bhatura is a bit different which it needs some milk and raising agent. I must say the kids will empty the plate in a minute and ask two luchis extra. The luchi will be quite smaller than a poori, and I use easy techniques to make a circle. Am very bad on roll the dough into perfect a circle. So I prefer the way, roll medium sized balls into a thin sheet and then cut with any round lids or cookie cutter. It’s so easy and quick method and give perfect circles. Yes! Now check out the recipe,
