Nolen Gur | Palm Jaggery is produced in West Bengal and sold world wide during winters. Usually the bengalis as well as others who know about this , purchase this jaggery in winter season and stock it for the whole year. As my mom belongs to West Bengal, i have grown up seeing her stocking up her pantry with fresh Nolen Gur. Nothing can beat the taste of delicacies made with Nolen Gur. Even in my blog i have made sure i add lots of Nolen Gur recipes. It’s tasty and healthier than the seets made with sugar etc.
Whether its peda, sondesh, rasgulla, payesh etc , when made with Nolen Gur the taste is beyond imagination. I bet one can never forget the taste in his/her lifespan. One such cool Nolen Gur dessert is Doi. Yes you heard me right, thick and creamy Greek yogurt or hung curd flavored with fresh palm jaggery and chilled in earthen ware gives a true smoky flavor that not just satisfy your taste buds but also takes you to a heavenly ride.
If you talk about Bengal, the one thing after fish that comes in mind is Mishti Doi. This Nolen Gur er Doi is a similar kind of Mishti Doi. Though the original procedure which my mother use to make was a bit lengthy one, but i was fortunate enough as she taught me the short one too. This instant nolen gur’er doi tastes exactly like the baked one. Merely takes 5 mins to make and 5 mins to set and you are done with the authentic, creamy, silky and luscious Nolen Gur’er Doi!
