When we think of cold, jaggery is a rarely overlooked component. As a natural sweetener, jaggery has a unique character that resonates with those who appreciate the beauty of unadulterated, natural flavours. In line with this sentiment, Khoya has introduced a nolengur range. ‘ Nolen Gur ‘ which means ‘new jaggery’ in Bengali, occupies the top and premium spot. This jaggery extracted from the sap of date palm tree, has a unique and complex flavor, often described as having hints of caramel, toffee, and a distinctive date-like richness.
Having experimented with various flavor pairings, we’ve introduced three distinct flavors.. The Peanut and nolengurpeda is like a tasty praline with a rounded sweetness and a hint of black salt for that extra kick. Next is the Pista Nolen Gur Peda, where the naturally sweet nuttiness of pistachios perfectly complements the rich, woody caramel sweetness of nolengur. For those with a penchant for nut-free sweets we have Nolan Barfi, an ageless fusion of jaggery and Khoya, with a touch of cardamom. A classic treat for refined taste buds.
