But that’s not the only type of jaggery that will blow your mind. The popular nolen gur in Bengal is used in the popular probesh. It comes from the sap of the date palm and is highly regarded by the crowds and the masses out there.
What are the benefits?
According to Munmun, this type of strain is very nutritious and healthy.
- Along with the presence of iron, it is a great source of energy.
- It works as a great antidote for anemia.
- It also has a lower glycemic index.
She finally concludes the statement and says, “The original karupatti does not dissolve instantly. It looks dull and the color is generally inconsistent. Make no mistake about these irregularities and choose something “smoother”, “prettier” or more “even”. Because remember, the more beautiful it is, the more refined it is.
