Surati Cuisine/ Surti Cuisine




Surati Cuisine/ Surti Cuisine is distinctly pure vegetarian and traditionally served elaborately on platters accompanied with rice and a mind boggling variety of wheat breads. Surat is bestowed with plenty of rainfall and therefore Surti cuisine is dominated by fruits and green vegetables. The focus is on making the food look appetizing with fresh green vegetables. The preparations are simple yet mouth watering. Often these vegetables are cooked in sesame oil to make a subtle but obvious difference in taste and flavor.

Ingredients for Surti food are easily available and the basic tastes have been largely retained in spite of a variety of modern influences and fusion food. Traditionally, in Surat, food is cooked for everybody to sit together and eat at the same time. With time, this trend of communal feast has become restricted, though a small portion is often shared buy a generous Surati housewife with her neighbors. The trend , however, still continues among the weaving community of Surat and in some factories. A mandatory glass of chaa or tea, often masala tea accompanies a Surati meal.

Varied tastes like tangy, sweet, hot and spicy mix and mingle in strange concoctions in Surati Cuisine/ Surti Cuisine. Srikhand, a sweet dish made of yogurt, is an obvious name when one mentions of Surti cuisine. Farsans, theplas, kadhis and laddoos belonging to the Surti cuisine are renowned all over India. The wide repertoire of snacks, pickles and chutneys accompany the Surati dishes. The surati confectionery products also deserve special mention.
