Notes: How to make Jaggery Syrup?
  • You need 1+1/2 cup jaggery, 1 cup water. In a saucepan, mix both together and on a low flame until jaggery melts completely.
  • Next, increase the flame to medium, and boil it until the syrup thickens. May take around 10 minutes. You do not have to reach one string consistency. Aim for thickness like honey, should be enough.
