a concentrated product of cane juice without separation of the molasses and crystals, contains sugars and other insoluble matter such as ash, proteins and bagasse fibers.

Considered to be a particularly wholesome sugar, retaining more mineral salts than refined sugar. Moreover, the process does not involve chemical agents. Ayurvedic medicine considers jaggery to be beneficial in treating throat and lung infections.

Jaggery is for sale in all the shops I go in here - except the ones that sell car tyres - it is one of the things you need to make wattalapam

Jaggery is how I feel when I've consumed too much jaggery - on the other hand maybe it's how I'd feel if I had bee stings around my mouth.


  1. Wattalapam looks divine, I must get to an Asian supermarket and find some jaggery.

  2. Coconut custard flan? Yes please

  3. I love coconut deserts, especially ice cream and mousse! I may give that yummy-looking wattalapam a try.

  4. jaggery sounds like an excellent remedy for constipation whist traveling....

    also, sounds like the state of my body after too much gin the night before....

  5. Great in hot milk when you're a bit 'fluey...

  6. i'm envious. here, my only link to anything sugar is having a cousin who once was crowned the sugar beet queen at her prom.

  7. Is Jaggery anything like molasses?
    Sounds very interesting.
    Hope you're having a great time.

  8. Eryl - Me too, I'll be making some when I get back

    Nursey - Coconuts Girls unite!

    xl - ... and boys!

    Deborah - a word that conjures up many images

    Mrs fly - I'll be trying that one too.

    Sherry - You know a sugar beet queen - that sounds impossibly exotic to my ears

    Dedene - it's a solid things and it does have that dark unrefined taste like molasses, but gentler.
