Luchi  is a deep-fried flatbread made of all purpose flour/maida that is typical of Odiya cuisine ,Bengali, and Assamese . In order to make luchis, a dough is prepared by mixing fine maida/ all purpose flour with water and a spoonful of ghee, which is then divided into small balls. These balls are flattened using a rolling pin and individually deep-fried in cooking oil or ghee. A typical luchi will measure 4-5 inches in diameter. They are usually served with curries or gravies. If maida/all purpose flour is substituted with atta/ whole wheat flour, it is called a poori.
