Meva Bati is a rich North Indian mithai made by stuffing a mava based dough with a rich mixture of nuts and mava, and deep-frying the delicate, stuffed balls till golden brown. These Meva Batis are then soaked in sugar syrup for a while and served warm.


You will love the crispness, balanced sweetness and rich texture of this traditional sweet, which is served on special occasions and parties too. In fact, like Jalebi , Meva Bati is also a nice mithai to serve at chaat parties to complement the spicy chaat items.
