Discover Haryanvi cuisine's richness through khoya suhali


Haryana is well-known for its high quality milk products. It has many popular sweet delicacies that drip syrup and ghee. Let us find out how 'khoya suhali,' a typical Haryanvi sweet, is prepared.


1 cup maida

¼ cup oil

1 cup sugar

200 gms khoya/mava

5 cardamoms

4 tbsp rose water

50 gms dry fruits


Take a large pan, mix the maida and oil and prepare a dough adding a little bit of water

When ready, it should feel similar to chappati dough

On obtaining the required constitution, keep aside the dough for 20 minutes

Then make lemon-sized balls of the dough

Each of the balls should be rolled to the size of a papad

Heat the oil, and fry the rolled dough till it turns brown in colour

Meanwhile, take the sugar in another vessel, add three-quarters cup of water and stir well

When the sugar dissolves completely, add rose water and cardamom to it.

Then add khoya/mava to this solution and stir again

If this is not properly done, the khoya/mava will float

Keep this solution on the stove and heat well. Before this sugar solution cools down, dip the fried maida delicacy into it and immediately remove

Spread the dry fruits over the delicacy

The dish tastes best when consumed after 12 hours
