Mysore pak is my favourite sweet. Krishna sweets in chennai is very popular for this sweet and this recipe almost taste like the same. The quality of sweet highly depends on the ghee we use. This is quite a easy and foolproof recipe. Mysore pak stays good at room temperature for a week or more. I prefer to warm it in microwave for few seconds before serving.
- Gram flour / Besan - 1/2 cup
- Ghee / Clarified Butter - 3/4 cup
- Sugar - 1/2 cup
- Water - 3 tbsp
1. Dry roast the besan / gram flour. Keep aside.
2. Heat ghee and divide it into two portion i.e. 1/2 cup and 1/4 cup.
3. In a heavy bottom pan, bring the sugar and water to boil until it forms single thread consistency.
4. Meanwhile, mix together fried gram flour and 1/2 cup of hot ghee without any lumps.
5. Once, the sugar syrup is ready add the flour ghee mixture to it and keep stirring without any lumps over low heat.
6. After 3 mins, slowly add the remaining 1/4 cup hot ghee to the minute and keep stirring until the mysore pak mixture rolls like a ball and doesn't stick on the sides of the pan.
7. Grease the tray with ghee and pour the mixture and spread evenly. Allow the mixture to cool down slightly.
8. Cut the mysore pak using greased knife to desired shape. Allow them to cool completely before removing them off.
Ready to serve.
