    Any way to reduce the sweetness, I would like to use it as an energy bar.. So eating healthier I would like to reduce jaggery content to control sweet in take .. can we mix jaggery with something else to reduce sweetness but getting the consistency for burfi making?

      For marking burfi you should either caramelize sugar or jaggery …if you are very concerned about the sugar intake then reduce 1-2 tbsp of jaggery from the recipe…
