  • 500 grams Crushed or grated Jaggery/Gud/Gur
  • 1 tablespoon Onion Seeds/Kalonji
  • 2 tablespoon Fennel Seeds/Saunf
  • 1 tablespoon Sesame seeds/Til
  • 2 tablespoon Desiccated Coconut
  • 1 tablespoon Coriander Seeds/Akha Dhaniya
  • 1 teaspoon Black Pepper/Kali Mirch
  • 15 pieces Almond/Badam
  • 5-6 Green Cardamom/Hari Elaichi
  • 1.5 tablespoon Dry Ginger Powder
  • 2 tablespoon Ghee


  • Grease a plate or a square dish and keep it aside.
  • Dry roast all the ingredients except Dry ginger powder on slow heat.
  • In a mortar and pestle, or using a rolling pin, lightly crush the black pepper, green cardamom and coriander seeds.
  • Chop the almonds seeds into small pieces.
  • In a heavy bottom pan , on slow to medium heat, add the ghee.
  • Once melted, add the crushed/grated Jaggery.
  • Let the jaggery melt on slow stirring in between so that it does not stick to the bottom of the pan.
  • Add ginger powder , once the jaggery is melted. Mix well
  • Now add the remaining ingredients and mix everything.
  • Quickly pour the mixture onto the greased plate.
  • Gently tap to spread and form an even layer, using the back of the spoon or spatula.
  • Let it cool a bit. Give desired shape to it. This needs to be done, while it is still a bit warm or else it would be difficult to cut it.
  • Cool it completely and store in an airtight container.


  • 1 Cup = 240 ml, 1 tablespoon = 15 ml, 1 teaspoon = 5 ml
  • After adding all the ingredients one needs to be quick as Jaggery will solidify quickly.
  • This stays good for at least a month
