Gur ke chawal (jaggery rice)


I had never heard about Gur Ke Chawal till I got married, at my in-laws' place they all were very fond of this sweet delicacy......I learned this recipe from my Mom in law, she used to make these rice to pamper me while I was pregnant. I always remember her whenever I make Gur Ke Chawal, but she was a supper cook I will never be able to match her level of cooking. This recipe is totally dedicated to her...
Gur ke chawal or jaggery rice are basically originated from Pakistan, but very popular in Punjab also and even in Kashmir. Long grain Basmati rice cooked in jaggery syrup and flavored with cardamom, sauf and bay leaf make this rice super tasty.

GURWALE SHALGAM ( SWEET AND TANGY TURNIPS) punjabi style

Turnips are called Shalgam in Punjabi/Hindi, Gonglu in Punjabi and Gogji in Kashmiri. They are mild in taste and absorb spices well. We love it in various forms. Shalgam is a winter vegetable and is a popular recipe from Punjabi cuisine. Shalgam (Turnip) belongs to the radish family. Shalgam ki sabzi is very good for health as it is very low in calories and fat, and a good source of fiber and several vitamins like Vitamin C, Vitamin B, VitaminB3, Vitamin B6. Gur is Hindi/Punjabi for jaggery.  This creamy version from Punjab is one of our favourites.
