Bengali Luchi Recipe / Luchi Recipe


This recipe is similar to my battura, but it has no curd or milk in it. There are few differences between luchi, poori and battura. Poori is made with wheat flour and it golden in colour, plus it gets a little hard and dense when it cools. Battura has milk, curd, some kind of raising agent or yeast it in. But this luchi is white in colour and has a good amount of ghee or oil in them which makes it soft soft even after it cools..
