3. Transfer to another plate and allow it to cool. Meantime heat jaggery and 1/2 cup of water and allow it to  boil.
4. Once jaggery dissolves in water,  drain the mixture to remove the dust from jaggery. Reuse drained  jaggery water to prepare syrup.

5. Heat the mixture in medium heat till the syrup thickens and reaches soft ball consistency. i.e, if you drop  spoonful of jaggery mixture dropped in a bowl of water, it should not dissolves as shown in pictures and  should be thick and able to make a soft ball out of it or candid thermometer shows 240 degree F.
