Jaggery Recipes | Collection of 26 Delicious Gur ki recipes

Collection of 26 delicious recipes you can make with jaggery. Jaggery is a sweetener widely used in Indian cuisine. jaggery is made from concentrating sugar cane juice, where the sugar cane juice is cooked slowly in large iron pans till it thickens. Then its allowed to cool and solidify. Thus jaggery is also unrefined.

Jaggery is always a better alternative than refined sugar. Its always best to use better alternatives to white sugar like jaggery, coconut sugar, palm jaggery, maple syrup, jaggery syrup, palm sugar, unrefined cane sugar, golden sugar, evaporated sugar cane juice or molasses or honey as a sweetener in the recipes.

I do not use refined sugar (white sugar) at home. I use unrefined cane sugar. Even in baking goods, I powder unrefined cane sugar and then add. Occasionally I also use demerara sugar and brown sugar in baking.

In some recipes where I can substitute jaggery easily, I add it in place of unrefined cane sugar. In drinks and Beverages, I add both unrefined cane sugar and evaporated sugar cane juice at times.

For healthy eating practices we should always try to opt for better alternatives if available or possible. E.g. Wherever possible I try to replace all purpose flour (maida) with whole wheat flour (atta). Some recipes like these are shared in this Collection of whole wheat recipes.

This collection of jaggery recipes has snacks and sweets made from regular jaggery as well as palm jaggery.
