The jaggery in this is a twist that most will not have seen - highly recommend using it if you are able to grab some from a local Indian store. Some large grocers will also sell it in the International sections, (HEB in Texas does sell it!) feel free to check with your local store as well. HERE is an example of something you would be looking for at a local Indian market!
Sometimes the center portion of the jaggery is soft enough to be smashed and packed, similar to brown sugar. If the jaggery you have is too firm, use a grater to shred it or shred it with a knife (as if chopping).
