A majority of Sindhis in the city know them. Their sev burfi prepared from channa dal, milk, dry fruits and ghee is light on the tummy and not cloyingly sweet.

Not just Sindhis. Many others know Shri Siddhi Vinayak Sweets. Now, still more are going to have a taste of its delicacies.

Started by Rajkumar Daya Singh Chhabria in 1995 in Kilpauk, the sweet store has opened its second outlet at Pantheon Road, Egmore. Sushil Kumar, his brother, has been assisting him. Now, the second generation is continuing the business.

“It is smaller than our Kilpauk outlet. We are slowly introducing items here. But we assure the same taste and quality with which we have built a clientele in these 19 years,” says Rishi, son of Rajkumar Daya Singh Chhabria.

Halwa (sev burfi), pista burfi, Kashmiri kalakand and Karachi halwa are some of the specialities at the store.

“Sindhi sweets have moderate sugar content,” says Rishi. Among the savouries, the most sought-after one is the sindhi papad, brought from Ulas Nagar, Maharashatra.

Apart from the 20 varieties of sweets, the store has on stock some of the specialities of various states. To name a few, Khakhra from Gujarat, vadis from Amritsar and fruit biscuit from Karachi Bakery.

On Sundays, they serve traditional Sindhi breakfast as takeaway comprising dal pakwaan, dhoklas and jalebis.
