  • Heat 1/2 cup water, add the grated jaggery, allow it to melt and bring to a boil. Reduce to low flame and cook the jaggery to softball consistency, approx 8-10 minutes. When you place a little jaggery syrup in a cup of water, it will form a softball. Turn off flame at this stage.

  • Remove to a serving bowl and serve garnish with roasted nuts.
