Mysore Pak is very special sweet for all South Indians. It is prepared using besan flour, ghee and sugar. Ghee is the major ingredient to bring the delicious flavour from the sweet. Using ghee makes the sweet soft and flavourful. Some people use half ghee and half oil, but this recipe is completely prepared using ghee. Mysore Pak is very famous in Sri Krishna Sweet, it is a famous sweet shop in South India.
Tips to make perfect Mysore Pak:
Sugar syrup consistency is very important. It should reach one string consistency.
If you don’t prefer ghee much, then add 1 cup ghee and 1 cup oil.
Wait for the Mysore Pak to cool down completely before you give them a shape.
Step by step process for Mysore Pak:
Take a pan, add 1 cup besan flour and saute on low flame for 2 to 3 minutes.
Now remove from heat and sieve the roasted flour using a sieve.
Now take another pan, add 2 cups of ghee and heat the ghee for a few seconds. After warming the ghee, take 1 cup of ghee and add it with besan flour.
Now mix ghee and besan flour well without any lumps. Let’s make the sugar syrup. Take another pan, add 1 ¼ cup sugar,
1 cup water and mix well till sugar dissolve completely in the water.
Cook sugar syrup for 8 to 10 minutes to get one string consistency. Once you reach one string consistency, add besan flour mixed with ghee and start stirring in the sugar syrup.
We still have one more cup ghee, so add 2 tbsp of ghee from the left-over ghee and keep stirring. Now add 2 tbsp ghee for every 5 minutes and mix well with the besan flour. This process takes about 18 to 20 minutes to achieve the right consistency for Mysore Pak.
Switch off the flame and pour the Mysore Pak in any mould and allow it to cool down completely before giving them a shape.
Make the desired shape once it is cool down completely.
Mysore Pak is ready to serve.
