HOW TO MAKE SOFT GHEE MYSORE PAK AT HOME




Mysore pak is one of the most popular sweets in India. Originally from Mysore in Karnataka, this delicacy is made using besan, ghee (clarified butter) and sugar and is available in almost all parts of the country. I am giving below a very simple recipe to make authentic soft melt in the mouth ghee Mysore pak at home. I would recommend this to everyone as it tastes delicious and can be cooked in less than 10 minutes.

Ingredients

2/3 cup ghee (clarified butter)
½ cup besan (gram flour)
1 cup sugar
¼ cup water

Method

Mix ghee and besan in a bowl to form a smooth paste without any lumps and keep ready. Heat sugar and water in a thick bottomed pan and boil till it forms a single thread consistency. (This might take about 2 to 3 minutes). Now slowly add the ghee-besan mix to the pan and continue stirring. When it starts leaving the sides of the pan but is still in liquid state (which might approximately take 3 minutes), switch off the gas and pour this over a greased square or rectangular plate. Allow it to set for a few minutes. Now cut it into thin long rectangles when it has set but is still warm. Allow the Mysore pa to cool down completely before taking the pieces off from the plate. Delicious Mysore pak is ready to be served. This recipe makes 12 to 15 pieces.

Tips and solution to common mistakes 
  • To check for single thread consistency, take a bowl of water and keep dropping small drops of sugar syrup into water every now and then. In the beginning, it will disperse, but when it reaches the single thread consistency, it will not change its shape and remain intact. At this stage, you can add the ghee- besan mix.  
  • If by mistake, you cook the Mysore pa for few more minutes, it will start thickening in the pan itself and will start hardening as you pour it into a plate. In this case, take a flat bowl or use a spatula and press the Mysore pak well when it is still hot, and cut it into pieces immediately. The taste will be similar, but you will get somewhat hard Mysore pak :( Try to take it off the stove a little earlier next time and you will get the perfect soft Mysore pak :)

  22. it was really helpful .i tried to make mysore pak several times but got only hard one.using ur recipe i got the correct soft texture.i have one suggestion that the besan should be heated to remove its raw smell

    1. Thanks for your comment... The recipe worked fine for us and there was no raw smell... May be it depends on the besan... If you feel some raw smell i guess you can heat it...
