Mysore Pak

Ingredients to make Mysore Pak

  • 1 cup Besan/chickpea Flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup Ghee/clarified butter
  • ¼ cup water

How to make Mysore Pak

  1. Swift chickpea flour twice to avoid lumps. Grease a plate or cake tin with ghee and set aside.
  2. In a heavy bottom cooking vessel, add sugar and water. Stir on low flame till sugar completely dissolves.
  3. Stir continuously scrapping the sides of the vessel. Once the sugar syrup reaches one string consistency (check NOTES), by continuously stirring with wooden spatula, add chickpea flour and mix until they are no lumps.
  4. This is bit tricky, but you can master it with a simple trick of continuous stirring.
  5. Cook for 4-5 minutes, until the mixture thickens. Now start adding ghee by continuously stirring. Keep stirring until the ghee is completely absorbed.
  6. Take a small plate filled with water. Drop a small drop of the above mixture on to it. Using your fingers try to make a ball. If you can make a ball easily, then our Mysore Pak is ready.
  7. Pour the mixture on a greased plate and quickly spread evenly. After 10 minutes, using a sharp knife, make impressions to get desired shapes (round or diamond or square).
  8. Leave it to cool completely. Once the mixture turns cool, run the knife through the impressions made and cut down the pieces accordingly.
  9. Store in a clean and dry air tight container.

My Tip:

NOTES: The color of Mysore Pak depends on the chickpea flour we use. Adding ½ tbsp. of baking powder to the flour will give hard Mysore Pak which is very famous in Andhra especially in the Ongole region.
