About Khejur Patali Gur
Patali Gur is a speciality of Bengal. This is the jaggery derived from the sap of the date palm tree (Khejur or Khajur Tree) . Farmers collect and cook the sap of the Date palm Tree. In this process, the jaggery changes colour from transparent to Burgundy and then its allowed to cool and solidify. In order to get the traditional flavour, the colling and solidification process is done in earthen pots and this enhances the flavour and longevity. Patali gur is a Bengal delicacy and is not to be confused with the Palm jaggery (from the palmyra tree) as against this authentic product which is from the Date Palm Tree.
