The winter calls for the goodness of yummy recipes, and nothing beats the goodness of gur! Gur or jaggery keeps us warm during cold days and is one of the best substitutes for white sugar. So, if you are looking for foods that can keep you warm, leave the calorie count behind and dig into the winter special jaggery dishes.
Since winter is here, it’s time to switch to the food that keeps us warm. One such excellent food is jaggery. Jaggery has beneficial properties we can boast about, which are extremely helpful during chilled days. It is an ideal ingredient for many Indian recipes.
Traditionally, jaggery is made by concentrating sugar cane juice, which is finely cooked in large iron pans with slow steers until it condenses. Then it’s cooled, placed in different shapes, or used in powder form. Pure jaggery is unrefined and filled with nutrition due to its molasses content.
Did you know a variety of jaggery is also made with organically cultivated sugar cane and is totally chemical-free? Organic Jaggery is non-distilled; there are no chemicals used in the making, so all the nutrients like magnesium, iron, calcium, and phosphorus are retained. Preferring organic jaggery and its powder is always the best choice as it comes in its natural form, has more nutrients, has a lower glycemic index, and is healthier.
Go for Dwaraka Organic’s jaggery powder, where we bring you the goodness of gur in its natural form.
