My story of Jaggery Cutting

The story of Jaggery cutting

The big lump of Jaggery to cut in small pieces to be able to fill in small jar

First idea was to break it - what to use for breaking was the question?

Somehow got some ladddle to break and broke with a thud!

Use a blunt knife to cut it

It worked but was too hard and too slow
