Culture of surat

Most of the major Indian festivals are celebrated here. Navratri is the most important festival though. During this occasion, people of all age group come out to celebrate by performing the ‘dandiya raas’ and ‘garba’ dances. The kite-flying festival of Uttarayan is also celebrated here with great pomp and gaiety. Surat is also known for its delectable cuisine. Dishes like locho (steamed snack made of gram flour and lentils, to be eaten immediately) is the local’s favourite. Other food items such as ghari (a type of sweet), Surati khaman, petis, rasaawala khaman, undhiyu and sarasiya khaja are famous here. Surti cuisine is quite spicy compared to cuisines from other parts of Gujarat. Roadside food is also quite popular in Surat.
