Gur Paare is a traditional sweet, quite popular in Punjab region, northern part of India. It is normally made during the festive season or during the wedding occasion/season.
It's one of the sweets that is given on marriage to the relatives, it's a part of shaadi ki mithai. It is a dry sweet which you can be preserved for 10 days and can be enjoyed for a long time.
I love gur paare a lot. It is one of my family favourites. I learned this from one of my friends, she loves and enjoy cooking and we together tried many dishes. She makes gur paare super tasty and shared her recipe with me.
Gur means jaggery, which is a traditional non-centrifugal cane sugar consumed in South Asia, Southeast Asia and some other countries in Asia and the Americas. It is a concentrated product of cane juice and often date or palm sap without separation of the molasses and crystals, and can vary from golden brown to dark brown in colour. It contains up to 50% sucrose, up to 20% invert sugars, and up to 20% moisture, with the remainder made up of other insoluble matter, such as wood ash, proteins, and bagasse fibres.
You can have gur paare as such and can enjoy it with your family and friends. Can also be given as a sweet in tiffin (lunch box).
