Kazarache Bol

Kazarache Bol – Catholic Wedding Special

The Bol is a dark brown, circular dome-shaped sweet, with solid brown bread like texture, with amazingly different taste. The major taste differentiator in this bol is the use of the dark-colored, pyramid shaped coconut jaggery, which is a specialty in Goa. It bestows a unique bitter-sweet taste to the product, in which it is added. This Bol is a traditional wedding gift distributed by Catholic families among relatives and friends, hence it is famously known as “kazarache bol’ or “madacho bol.”
