Suvali | Suvari | Meethi Farsi Puri | Kharkhariya recipe | Sweet and Flaky Puri | Diwali Special Traditional Gujarati Snack
Suvali is sweet crispy deep-fried Indian crisps. It is a Diwali special traditional recipe made in Gujarati households.
Suvali is also known as Suvari, Suwadi, Kharkhariya, Kharkharia, Crispy Sweet Puri. It is pinkish-brown in color, mildly sweet, crispy, and crunchy in taste.
Made using all-purpose plain flour or maida, Clarified butter or ghee, milk, sugar, and cardamom powder. Knead a semi-soft dough, roll small puris and deep fry them on slow flame until pinkish brown color.
Note: Always fry on medium-low flame. If you fry on high flame, then they will start to burn from outside, and they will be uncooked from inside.
I have seen some people add sesame seeds to it, which gives a unique taste, but it is optional. If you like Suvali without any flavors, then skip adding cardamom powder.
Suvali is a Diwali special recipe. You can serve it to guests coming at home during festive times. I share it with neighbors, friends, and family. Suvari is a forgotten recipe, but I love this recipe and always make it during holiday seasons.
I always prefer homemade snacks because I choose the high quality of ingredients, no preservatives, no food color, and good quality of the oil. These homemade snacks, therefore, are healthy and hygienic too. I usually make Suvali recipe during festivals like Diwali, and when it cools down completely, store it in an airtight container. It stays fresh for up to 2-3 weeks.
It contains maida, sugar and is deep-fried and therefore it is made only on special occasions and festivals.
- You can enjoy Suvali during the morning or evening as a snack with your favorite cup of tea or coffee.
- Suvali is a kid-friendly recipe, and you can also give it in their school tiffin box.
Store Suvali in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 2-3 weeks
