Nolen Gur: Redefining Sweetness

Fragrant and sweet Nolen Gur/Khejur Gur/Patali Gur is a special jaggery produced by date trees (palm trees) in Bengal only in the winter months. Nolen gur is prepared by collecting palm saps or ambrosial drops in earthen pots which are tied to the trees throughout the night and brought down carefully the crack of the dawn. The flavor, sweetness and fragrance of nolen gur sets off a celebration of dessert made with it, which people wait throughout the year. Many sweet shops, restaurants and hotels host nolen gur festival of traditional Bengali sweets during this time.
