  • I used powdered jaggery so it dissolved quickly. If you use crushed jaggery it takes a bit more time to get dissolved. So if you have block jaggery you can grate it using a grater.
  • I would recommend to use freshly crushed pepper and cardamom for more flavour.
  • The color of the popsicles purely depends on the jaggery colour.
  • I got 5 medium sized popsicles, I had around 1/4 cup extra panakam which kids enjoyed as such.
