  • Sprinkle some flour on the countertop or your rolling board. Take one small portion of the dough and start expanding it with a rolling pin.
  • You have to be careful to roll them out not too thick and not too thin otherwise, it will not be like Luchi Paranta. Also, try to maintain its circular shape and the size should be that of a paranta and not a luchi.
  • Take a deep frying pan, and heat oil to a medium temperature. Fry one luchi paranta at a time.
  • Do not forget to keep an eye out for it and keep rotating it with a perforated ladle. 
  • Flip to the other side when one side is done to a perfect golden colour. Fry both sides evenly.
  • Carefully take it out and keep it aside. Fry the other ones as well.
  • Serve it hot with Aloor Dum or Chhole Masala. You can also pair it with raita or plain curd. If you plan on skipping curd altogether, then go for Chai or Lassi.
