Man made Gold

The Golden Jaggery of Kolhapur gets GI rights!

I have been fortunate during my childhood for having been served this golden jaggery directly from Kolhapur through my maternal grand father. And my mom still get her share of stock every year.

Can you imagine maharashtrian brahmin cuisine without the use of jaggery/gul? I cannot!
It is one of the ingredient without which my kitchen is incomplete. Gul poli, til gul, puran poli, modak, ghavachi kheer, amti, vangyachi rassa bhaji... name it and life is more live-able!
