• Maida Flour – 2 Cups
  • Ghee (clarified butter) – 2 Tbsps
  • Salt – 1/2 tsp
  • Water – 1 Cup or as needed
  • Oil – For Frying


Sift the flour into a parath or a large mixing bowl. Make a well in the centre and add the ghee and salt and mix it all up. Gradually add the water, and knead well to make a firm but pliant dough. Let the dough rest for about 30 mins.

This dough will make about 25 – 30 luchis.

Heat oil in a karahi to fry the luchis. The oil must be hot. If it is cool the luchis will not puff up.

Grease the rolling surface. Divide the dough into 25 or 30 balls. Roll out one ball at a time with a rolling pin into thin rounds. Place it in the karahi of hot oil. It will puff up. Turn to lightly brown the other side.

Remove with a slotted spoon to drain out the oil and serve. Luchis must be served and eaten immediately
