Surat shop launches special sweet Gold Ghari Rs 9000 per Kg

A sweet shop in Surat has added 'gold sweet' to its list of delectable preparations ahead of the Chandi Padvo festival. Pictures of the sweet, named Gold Ghari, went viral on Twitter on Saturday.

Gold ghari, a different version of the popular Surat sweet ghari, is the latest addition to the shop's menu, news agency ANI reports. It was launched ahead of Chandi Padvo, a festival falling a day after Sharad Poornima.

"It is available at Rs 9,000 per kg. The normal ghari is available at Rs 660-820 per kg," Rohan, owner of the shop.

Rohan also said that Gold ghari is healthy and in fact, gold is a beneficial metal in Ayurveda.

"We have launched Gold ghari this year. It is healthy. Gold is considered a beneficial metal in Ayurveda. It has been three days since its launch. Demand is a little below expectation as the market is sluggish. We hope it will get a good response in the coming days," Rohan added.

Chandani Padva or Chandi Padvo is an occasion when Surat residents enjoy a popular local variety of sweet Ghari, Bhushu.
