Jaggery

Jaggery

Jaggery is unrefined sugar, which is widely used in Indian cooking.

It is made from concentrated sugarcane juice, but the molasses are not separated which is done in the case of sugar.  When jaggery is not available normal sugar can be used in its place although this will give you the sweetness required it does not contain quite the same taste.
