      Title: Luchi (crisp fried bread)
 Categories: Bakery, Indian, Breads
      Yield: 20 Luchis
 
      1 c  All-purpose flour
      1 pn Salt
      2 tb Ghee
      2 tb Water
           Oil for deep-fat frying
 
  Sift together the flour & salt.  Mix in the ghee & add then add just
  enough water to make a stiff dough.  Knead very well for 10 to 15
  minutes. Divide the dough into 20 balls, cover & set aside for 20
  minutes.
  
  Roll out each ball on an unfloured board into small, flat, thin
  circles. If the dough is stiff, try lightly greasing the rolling pin.
  Roll each luchi as thinly as possible.  If you make puri, roll them
  out thinner than you would when making puri.
  
  Heat 2 or 3 inches of oil in a skillet or wok until it is very hot.
  Drop the luchi into the hot oil & press down lightly with the back of
  a spoon. They will puff up exactly like puri.  Drain & serve
  immediately.
