Jaggery (Bella)


Jaggery, known as "gur" in Hindi, is a traditional sweetener widely used in both Mangalorean and Kerala cuisines. It is made from the sap of palm trees or sugarcane juice, which is boiled and then solidified into blocks or cones. Jaggery has a rich, caramel-like flavor and is commonly used as an alternative to refined sugar in various dishes. Jaggery is used in traditional Mangalorean sweets like payasa (kheer), laddu, holige (sweet stuffed pancakes), and halwa. It adds a natural sweetness and enhances the flavor of these desserts.
