Swaari is a delicious, soft, fried bread prepared from all-purpose white flour. The thin bread is white in color, very chewy and prepared with just three ingredients: flour, oil, and water. It is hand-stretched, fried in hot oil and removed promptly before it starts to get crispy, brown, or over fried. It is served at room temperature, folded in half or into a triangle. This bread is usually made for celebrations and festivals and bought from sweet shops. Swaari is often eaten
