Deep fried pancakes made with all purpose flour.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Sift all purpose flour and salt. Add 1/2 tbsp oil. Knead lightly. Add water and knead well till becomes soft. Water should be added gradually. Keep aside covered for about 20 minutes.
  2. Divide into about 10 portions. Roll out each portion into a round size of about four inch diameter.
  3. Heat oil to very hot in a deep frying pan. Fry one at a time with light tapping so that it puffs, turn over till light golden. Drain and remove.
  4. Serve hot with any curry or can be taken as it is.
  5. Note:-Important points to note are - kneading and frying. Too much kneading with oil will make very crunchy luchis. But luchis should be soft and puffed.

Delicious! They went so fast I could hardly keep them around long enough to take a picture of them! I kind of had to guess on how much water I should put in but it turned out well anyway. I added it a little at a time like you said and ended up adding apx. half a cup. They turned out soft and so good. Thanks Roja Khan!
