Walnuts coated with gur

Posted on July 2, 2009. Filed under: Sweets | Tags: , , |

Jaggery is an unrefined, dark, hard sugar sold in blocks. Supermarkets have started to stock it, but it’s a softer, more watery version of the real thing. Either will work, but the darker one has a more molasses-like flavour.

100g/3½oz jaggery (available in Asian stores and some supermarkets), chopped or pounded into smallish pieces
50g/2oz walnut halves, shells removed

1. Place the jaggery into a small pan and heat gently, stirring frequently, until melted and smooth.
2. Add the walnut halves and stir to coat.
3. Spread the walnut halves onto a sheet of baking paper or an oiled plate, working quickly before the jaggery starts to harden – if it does, return to the heat for a few seconds until melted again. Allow to cool completely, then break into pieces.
4. When cold, store in an airtight container until needed. Serve as a snack or sprinkled over desserts and yoghurts.
