Description

Jaggery is made of the products of sugarcane and the date palm tree.The sugar made from the sap of the date palm is both more prized and lesscommonly available outside of the regions where it is made. The date palm is tapped for producing jaggery in West Bengal, South India, Bangladesh, Pakistan,and Sri Lanka.In Sri Lanka, syrup extracts from kithul (Caryota urens)trees are widely used for jaggery production. This is considered the best jaggery available on the local market and is more highly valued than that from other sources.

Culinary uses
Jaggery is used extensively in both sweet and savoury dishes across India and Sri Lanka. It is added to curries and dals in the southern states of India. A dash of jaggery when added vegetables like bitter gourd and brinjal reduces their bitterness to a great extent. The Gujaratis use it to enhance the taste in a lot of their dishes. Jaggery is also used in the preparation of toffees and some cakes.
