How can you tell the difference between real and fake jaggery?

If the jaggery changes to pink colour, it means that artificial colours have been added to it. To know if jaggery is genuine or fake, taste it. 

True jaggery is extremely sweet. Fake jaggery can have discolouration and a bitter or salty taste.

Is pure jaggery soft or hard?

Because this is a natural product, consistency varies. Some blocks are more moist naturally (which is more traditional), and some blocks are more dry.

Dry blocks can be grated with a box grater. Softer jaggery is natural and normal and can be cut with a spoon or butter knife.
