It is the only method followed all over India. 
 
Jaggery making is a popular activity in several parts of India, especially Mahrashtra and Uttar Pradesh; however, the technology used by the manufacturers is quite old.

This method involved in it needs a lot of experience and expertise.
The process of manufacturing jaggery involves crushing sugarcane using a crusher and extracting juice out of it.
The machine used in crushing the cane, and to send the juice directly to the big pan.
The sugar cane juice is then poured in a large shallow but thick Iron vessels / pan (called Kadhai) and made to boil over earthen ovens. It is continuously stirred using large ladles to avoid sticking at the bottom of the vessel. 

This boiling and stirring goes on for hours until most of the water from the juice is vapourised and the juice starts to thicken, as the concentration of sugar increases in it.
The fuel used for boiling the sugar cane juice is predominantly the dried sugar cane remains left after extraction of juice from it. Now, that was funny, wasn’t that?

The final output a sweet Jaggrey.
