Jaggery Rice | Meethe Chawal | How To Make Meethe Chawal


Jaggery Rice is Pakistani cuisine and also a popular sweet rice dish which is also known as Meethe Chawal in which ‘Meetha’ means Sweet and ‘Chawal’ means Rice. That comes with those who are migrated from Pakistan to India after partition, from till now it is prepared in every Punjabi household.


I am having Gur Vale Chawal aka Jaggery Rice since my childhood, so this recipe is not new for me. Jaggery Rice or meethe chawal is a delicious gluten-free Rice Dish.

‘Gur’ is Urdu word of Jaggery and Chawal means Rice.  Jaggery Rice has an organic amber color because it is prepared in Gur Water and water is evaporated and thick Gur aka Jaggery paste is left on Rice.

Along with Gur and Rice, other ingredients are also added in this rice dish i.e grated carrot, roasted peanut, cardamom, fennel seeds, dry coconut, other dry fruits.  I personally preferred this recipe only in winter because the ingredients that I am going to add is only available in winter and I can’t have meethe chawal without these ingredients.
