ABOUT Nolen Gurer Sandesh (Date Palm Jaggery Sandesh) RECIPE

It is a very special sweet in bengali cuisine in winter. In winter nolen gur comes to the market. From my childhood I love this sweet very much. In kolkata we get it in any of the sweet shops easily in winter time. But now where I live, it is not possible to get it easily. I had stored some jaggery in my fridge. So now I am making this sweet in my kitchen.
