Mysore Pak Recipe | Festival Sweet Recipes

Mysore Pak is the very first sweet that I made for this Diwali. I kept my fingers crossed till I completed with its preparation and tasted a bit of it. I was told that, though this recipe sounds easy, there are few points which has to be followed perfectly to get a very soft mysore pak. I prefer the soft mysore pak than the crsipy one. So I was hoping mine to turn out to be a softer version and it did came out as I expected. Thanks to mom for sharing this recipe Smile
Besan / Gram Flour 1 Cup
Sugar 1 Cup
Ghee 1 Cup + 1 Teaspoon (For greasing)
Water 1/2 Cup

Preparation Method
  • In a hot pan, dry roast the gram flour till a nice aroma comes out. Make sure it does not get burnt at the bottom. Keep stirring frequently and roast it till the raw smell goes off.
  • Allow it to cool down and sieve the roasted gram flour and keep it ready.
  • Meanwhile measure 1 cup of ghee and melt it and keep it ready,
  • Also grease a tray with a teaspoon of ghee and let it aside.
  • Measure 1 cup of sugar and add 1/2 cup of water and bring it to boil.
  • Wait till the sugar syrup reaches 1 string consistency. Take a drop of sugar syrup and keep between your index finger and thumb and if you press it and release you will get a thin string as shown in the picture below. That is the correct consistency.
  • Now reduce the flame to medium and add little gram flour, little ghee. Repeat adding gram flour and ghee till the entire cup of ghee and besan is added. Also keep stirring continously.
  • At some point, the mixture will reach a consistency where it does not stick to the sides of the pan and also froth starts to appear on the corners.
  • Quickly remove the pan from flame at that consistency and transfer the contents to the tray greased with ghee.
  • Level them and allow it to cool down.
  • When it is almost cooled down, cut them into pieces of your desired shape with a knife.
  • Gently remove each piece from the tray and transfer it to a box once it is completely cooled out.
