dotivala bakery, During their in reign India, the Dutch established in Surat a warehouse on Dutch Road, in which five parsee gentlemen were employed to make breads. When the Dutch left India at the end of their rule they handed over their ovens to one of our ancestors Mr. Faramji Pestonji Dotivala. Faramji continued to supply breads to the remaining colonials.As time went by, the business went slack and the breads were left unsold. Bread dough in those days was fermented with toddy sap of palm tree so it would not spoil for considerable amount of time.However the breads would become dry due to loss of moisture. The leftover dried breads were sold cheap, which gained considerable popularity due to their lightness and crispy texture. The demand increased so the breads had to be dried in the ovens specially to achieve the desired dryness and texture. They were also shaped differently. Even today these biscuits are made and are very popular, and are known as Irani biscuits. Doctors used to recommend these biscuits to the patients and hence the popularity of those biscuits increased.They were low in calorie value and were easily digestible. Once the patients regained their strenght the doctors adviced them to eat biscuits with fat so the biscuits were made using excess shortening. These biscuits are today known as the famous Farmasu Surti Batasa or Butter Biscuits. In those days the locals used to make a sweet called dal. our ancestors baked the and now famous nankhatai was invented
