Search for index field value in text possible?

The problem:
I have a long list of short strings (1-5 words, mostly) which I want to fuzzy check if they are in a text. The shorts strings are in an index, while the text is part of the query. Is this possible? I managed to do it the other way around, but that would result in several thousand queries for me, because I need to know which strings are inside the text.

I'm currently using an implementation in Java to do this fuzzy compare, but it is rather slow and memory intensive and I thought that maybe using ES could provide a better solution for that.

Have you looked at percolator queries to see if that might fit your requirements?
