Suvali recipe | Gujarati suvari recipe | Kharkhariya recipe | sweet farsi Puri

Suvali is a traditional Gujarati-style sweet farsi puri also known as kharkhariya. It is mildly sweet, crispy, and crunchy in taste. It is made with all-purpose flour (maida) and sugar and flavored with cardamom powder. It is generally prepared during festivals like Diwali and Janmashtami. It is easy to make and store in an airtight container for up to 1 month after frying.

I will share a tasty suvali recipe with a perfect ingredient ratio and a few no-fail tips that helps you to make flaky and biscuit-like melt-in-mouth suvali on the first attempt. Do try this!

The key to making tasty suvali (meethi farsi puri) at home are
  • Firstly, I made suvali dough with maida and sugar-water mixture flavored with cardamom powder. Traditionally, milk is used to knead suvali dough, but to increase it, it kneads with water.
  • Secondly, knead the stiff and smooth dough for suvali. Do not knead soft dough, I recommend adding a sugar-water mixture in batches while kneading to keep it under control. Also beat suvali dough until it becomes smooth, pliable, and lighter in color. This process will help to make crispy and soft suvali.
  • Lastly, for frying, add suvali on medium flame, and then lower the flame to make it golden brown. It will become crispy once it is cool down. Also, store them in an airtight container for longer shelf life.
