Preparing The Dough

  • Add the all purpose flour and sooji flour in a bowl and add enough salt and one tablespoon of sugar, mix well.
  • mix the ghee with the warm water and add this mixture to the dry flour mixture, mix everything well to form the dough. If needed you may add very little more water (like about a tablespoon) or ghee or oil to make the perfect dough. Keep this dough covered for about 5 minutes of time.

To make luchi puri

  • Make very small balls out of the dough and keep aside.
  • Heat oil (or ghee or you can use a mixture of both) in a frying pan and when the oil is hot enough, roll out the first luchi by rolling the dough ball very thinly. I have found that rolling them thinly make frying easy, so make sure to prepare very small balls and roll them thinly.
  • Add the first luchi to the hot oil, as it puffs up, gently press down with a spoon of spatula to hold it under the oil and gently flip and fry the other side too. Transfer the cooked luchi to a serving dish or foil lined with paper towel so it will absorb any excessive oil. Similarly fry all luchis until all the dough is finished. Serve the luchis hot with any curry of your choice, some suggestions will be chole masala (chickpea curry), potao curry etc.


Adding sooji flour and sugar is not necessary and may not be there in the traditional authentic recipes, but I loved the results. Adding the sugar will also result in few brown spots while the traditional luchis are supposed to look white in color.
