2. Now remove from the heat and strain this syrup in to another heavy bottom pan (this processes is to remove any stones or and dart from the jaggery and sugar).
3. Now bring back this syrup to the heat and bring to a full boil now you can see lot of bubbling and rising to the surface stir continually and cook till when you drop a bit of this syrup in to cold water it will solidify like a ball.
