well, i guess many non-bengali’s may have a question by now on how it is different from normal poori’s. to answer this question, the main difference is the usage of flour. in this luchai puri recipe, the main ingredient is plain flour which actually helps to get the bright glossy colour. the other key ingredient for this recipe is ghee or clarified butter which is mixed with the maida dough. hence when you have this bread with any curry you would get the ghee flavour in each bite. i personally do not like to have ghee in my luchai and i would avoid while my making it for personal use. but to get the traditional and authentic taste, i would heavily recommend sticking to spoon full of ghee.

furthermore, i would like to highlight some tips, suggestions and variations for a perfect bengali luchi recipe. firstly, the recipe has to be made with plain flour or maida and there is no option to avoid it. if you fall back to wheat flour, you would end up making the normal pooris otherwise. secondly, ensure to make the dough very tight by adding a small quantity of water in regular interval. also once the dough is prepared, rest it for 30-60 mins for a perfect texture. lastly, deep fry these in small batch or even better deep fry them individually. also once the luchi disc is submerged in hot oil or ghee, start splashing oil on top of it so that it puffs fully.
