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..

Add in 1/2 cup of chocolate chips and 1/2 cup of chocolate chunks. Reserve few for topping the cookies..Mix this well.

Now line a tray with silicon mat or foil and scoop some of the batter using a icecream scoop and place it over the tray. Leave distance between each cookie.

Now take the remaining chocolate chips and chunks and dot it all over the cookies.

Place this tray in freezer for 10 to 15 mins till the cookies get rock hard. 

Preheat oven to 170 Degree C.

I popped the bowl into the fridge for 30 mins or so

after 30 mins the mix is little firm to scoop.

I had this silicon mat lying around, so i placed it over a plate.

use a icecream scoop to scoop perfect cookies

place it over the silicon mat, leaving space between each one, because this cookies will spread a lot

i took some extra chocolate chips and chocolate chunks 

i studded it all over the cookies
