The word Surti comes from Surat. It means the one who belongs to Surat city. On the other hand, locho is lingo in Surat. It has vivid meanings. For example, locho in English is dispute, trouble, confusion, etc.
But wait the meaning of surti locho is neither a dispute nor a confusion. It’s the name of a food item. Yes, you read that right. It’s a Gujarati breakfast item heavily consumed in the Diamond city Surat.
Why it is called Locho?
Let me try to explain why a food item has such a weird name.🤣🤣🤣
According to Wikipedia, Locho is steamed Gujarati Farsan (Snack /Side Dish) that originated in Surat. Gram flour is the main ingredient in the recipe. The dish derives its name from its loose consistency and irregular shape like dumplings. It is somewhat related to Khaman.લોચો એટલે ખમણનું જુવાનીનું નામ.🤓😁😆🤣
Therefore, the name locho is all because of the loose consistency of steamed gram flour batter. Needless to say, why do people of Surat call it Surti Locho. Isn’t it?
