Sift flour with salt once in a large bowl.
Add oil or ghee to the same and mix till incorporated.
Make a well in the middle and add 1/2 cup of warm water. Gently mix the water and flour and start kneading.
Add a little more warm water if the dough feels very dry. We are looking at a firm dough.
Knead for about 3-4 minutes till you have a smooth dough.
Cover with the dough with a wet muslin cloth and let it rest for 15-20 minutes.
Divide the dough in about 20 small round balls.
Roll out each dough ball to 1/4 inch thickness and set them aside on flat dishes or similar.
While you are rolling the luchis, heat the oil in a kadhai on medium heat.
When the oil is hot, fry luchis for about 1 minute on both sides. We are not looking at browning them.
Serve hot with Chholar Dal.
