Locho is a steamed Gujarati Farsan (Snack /Side Dish) that originated in Surat.[1] It is made from gram flour. The dish derives its name from its loose consistency and irregular shape like dumplings. It is somewhat related to Khaman. Unlike Khaman it is not served in regular shaped cut pieces. It is often seasoned with oil, butter, sev, spices, coriander, onion etc.[2]
