KATHMANDU, Jan 10: With a drop in the mercury and arrival of Maghe Sankranti, the demand for molasses has skyrocketed. The entire town of Tokha is now full with the aroma of molasses as businesses go round the clock preparing it to meet the rising demand.
“The demands peak from mid November to mid February. It’s our peak time so we are running round the clock,” said a molasses maker.
Here are some photos showing how molasses are being made in the historic town of Tokha.
