Mysore pak is a famous South Indian sweet recipe which is made out of gram flour( besan), sugar, oil and ghee. It is a common sweet available in all sweet stalls in South India.
Mysore pak is a classical, traditional sweet originated from the royal kitchen of Mysore Palace when the King asked to prepare a unique, sweet dish. ‘Pak’ or ‘Paka’ means sugar syrup.
Though making mysore pak doesn’t require much ingredients, it is very tricky to make. If you miss the perfect consistency, then it goes wrong totally. The recipe, I have shared today is not soft ghee mysorepak’s. We are using both hot ghee and oil to make this one.
Making the sugar syrup till you get one string consistency, adding gram flour till it dissolves in sugar syrup without lumps formed, then adding hot oil and ghee side by side till the flour froths each time, finally it froths completely and starts to leave oil is the perfect consistency. To get this, stirring continuously in medium flame is more important.
To make this mysorepak, I have used light brown sugar. You can also make the same recipe using white sugar.
I have explained the process in detail with step-by-step pictures and detailed explanation. Check the process below❤
Gram flour/ besan- 1 cup
Sugar- 2 cups ( I have used brown sugar)
Water- 1/2 cup
Ghee- 1 cup
Oil- 1 cup
Any sugar- both white/brown sugar can be used.
One-string consistency is a must for a sugar syrup.
