  • besan flour - 1 cup
  • sugar - 2 cups
  • ghee - 1 cup
  • Vanaspathi - 1 cup
  • water - 1/2 cup

How to make Traditional Mysore Pak

  1. In a pan heat 1 tablespoon of ghee and fry besan till you get nice aroma in a medium flame and remove and cool. Do not burn the besan.
  2. Heat ghee and vanaspathi together in a pan.
  3. In another heavy bottomed pan, add sugar and water and heat well. Heat till you get soft ball consistency. That is, take little water in a small cup. In that add some syrup and if you rool it will roll like a ball and when you take out the
  4. Now immediately sprinkle the flour and mix well without forming lumps. Mix vigorously.
  5. In the meantime, take a plate and grease with little ghee all over the plate and keep aside.
  6. When the flour mixes well with the sugar syrup, add hot ghee little by little and mix well.
  7. Ghee will be fully mixed with the flour and then it will become frothy.
  8. Then ghee will start to ooze out. At this time switch off the flame and spread it in the plate which is greased by ghee.
  9. When it is little hot itself, make lines with knife and keep aside. If it fully cools down, you cannot cut them.
  10. When cooled fully, remove from the plate and store in an airtight container.

My Tip:

If you want you can use fully ghee itself for making mysore pak. Do not forget to fry besan flour in ghee. Otherwise there will be raw smell of the flour in the sweet. For this the consistency of sugar syrup is very important. If you leave too much, mysore pak will become hard.
