When I was a kid, I was obsessed with jaggery. I could eat a bowl of it in one sitting. Not very good for my teeth, I know. But luckily, as I grew older, the level of obsession has come down. However, my love for jaggery loaded snacks still remains the same.
I’ve a super yummy snack coming up on the blog. As jaggery is one of the main components of the upcoming sweet snack, I thought I’d introduce you to the process of melting jaggery first.
Melting jaggery is a no-brainer. All you need to do is heat grated jaggery and water, and then cool it down. Remember the whole process is done over low flame.
Let’s start !!!
- 1 cup grated jaggery
- ¾ cup water
- Place jaggery and water in a medium-sized pan.
- Place the pan over low heat. Simmer, stirring occasionally, until melted. Leave the mixture to cool. While cooling, the impurities will settle down to the bottom of the pan. You can also pass it through a sieve to remove the impurities.
