I have big chunks of jaggery. I want to turn them into fine powder.

What is the best way to turn the chunks of jaggery into their powdered form?


I usually grate my jaggery block on a microplane grater although your standard cheese grater will work too. I haven't tried a food processor yet, although that would probably work.

Next time I'm going to get granulated palm sugar as I've found working with a jaggery block too much hassle.

  • I'm fairly certain (though can't recall source, sorry) that jaggery is hard enough to damage food processor blades, so try at your own risk. I think the microplane is the way to go.

  • I think it depends on the jaggery. My block is fairly moist and more sticky than hard, but others have been harder. None of the ones I have had seemed hard enough to damage a processor blade but I would not assume anything.
