Preparing the dough:
In a mixing bowl add maida (all purpose flour), salt, melted ghee (or oil), sugar and kalonji.
Mix all ingredients well and rub the mixture using your fingertips.
Add little water at a time and knead to soft dough.
Cover the dough set aside for at least half an hour.
Rolling the dough balls:
Make small balls out of the dough.
Using a rolling pin roll each dough ball into circles, about 4 -5″ in diameter.
Make a thick Puri like shape, do not roll too thin.
Roll out the rest of Luchis in the same way.
Meanwhile, heat oil in a deep pan/kadai over medium high heat and when oil is hot enough put the heat on medium.
Gently slide each luchi into oil.
Press a little bit in the centre with a slotted spatula so that Luchi puffs up.
Flip and fry on both sides.
When both the sides get cooked, remove them to a plate with an absorbent tissue paper.
Fry rest of the Luchis in the same way. Turn off the heat.
Serve luchis with dum aloo or with your favourite sides. Today I have served with a spicy cauliflower curry.
