Jaggery, also known as gur, is a type of unrefined sugar that is commonly used in Pakistani cuisine. It is made by boiling sugar cane juice or palm sap until it thickens and solidifies into a block or paste.
Jaggery has a rich, caramel-like flavor and a texture that is similar to brown sugar. It is often used as a sweetener in dishes like desserts, chai (tea), and traditional Pakistani sweets. It is also used in savory dishes like curries and chutneys to add a sweet and tangy flavor.
