Recipe (Makes 8 lucchis) :
All-purpose flour - 1 cup
Salt - 1/2 tsp
Fine semolina - 1 tbsp
Fennel - 1 tsp, dry roasted and ground
Oil - 1 tbsp
Water - 1/4 cup
Oil - for frying
Sift the flour and salt into a large bowl.
Add the semolina and fennel and mix well.
In another bowl combine water and oil.
Mix together with the dry ingredients.
Knead well to make a smooth dough, adding more water if necessary.
Cover the bowl with a cloth and set the dough aside for 15 minutes.
Divide the dough into eight balls, flatten slightly and then roll them out in the shape of disks (4-5" diameter).
Heat the oil in a wok/kadai until very hot.
Fry the breads one at a time, flicking the hot oil over the top so that it puffs up.
Turn and cook on the other side until golden brown.
Drain on paper towels.
Serve hot with Indian curries.

- I made 1 1/2 recipe to get 12 lucchis.
- While frying the pooris, push down the bread under the oil so that it will easily puff up.
