Sooji luchi / Semolina luchi


Lot of festivals around on corner. And who wants to have the same, boring foods during festival days. Festival foods can be interesting and can be enjoyed in some newer form.



That’s why I am sharing a new form of luchi with my friends. Luchi is also known as puri or poori. These are obviously a deep fried stuff. And they can‘t be ignored during festival season.Luchi is an important breakfast dish in every Bengali house. Bengalis consider luchi as an important part of their life and they can have these any time, even without occasion.



Luchi can be made using all-purpose flour or whole wheat flour. But these luchies are made with semolina or sooji.  Fortunately I found this recipe in a Bengali forum around 3 years back. Immediately I ran into my kitchen and tried these out. My mother in law loved these luchi. Since then, these have become regular breakfast stuff in my house.



Not only in festival season, you can make these for breakfast and give your kid or hubby in tiffin box. It is best to have these luchies with niramish aloo dum or cholar dal. we love to have these with alooer chorchori.
