Soft Mysore Pak- Krishna sweet style

Mysore Pak Recipe
Mysore Pak is the delicious melting sweet. The Krishna sweets(is the famous sweets shop in Chennai) style mysore pak melts in your mouth as you eat and it is the melting magic.
Besan/ Gram flour, sugar and ghee are the ingredients which yields this melting magic with proper consistency.Consistency is very important in this recipe and also the ghee you use plays a major role in the taste. So using melted ghee from butter is best. I'll post the recipe of getting ghee from butter soon. I tried this recipe a year ago. So thought it to post now. While preparing, keep the flame in low, whenever you got doubt about consistency, and at the end stage, always keep the mixture in low flame and check the consistency. It will be like soft palkova and finding this consistency is really very important, so do it carefully. If you get the correct consistency, mysore pak will be really the melting magic or else it will be hard. This time I made mysore pak with only half cup and since it came out like melting magic, hubby saved this and was very careful not to finish it up soon...Smiley. My son, he loved it too. He was asking pointing it to that and enjoyed it.
When considering health, it has more ghee but the taste is heavenly...Enjoy cooking the mysore pak.

  1. Using good qulaity ghee is more important, because it is the ghee which gives the taste of mysore pak. So it is best to use melted ghee from butter. Actually this type of ghee gives the good taste of mysore pak.
  2. Sieving the besan is important, because it helps to prevent lumps and gives you fine flour. If you do not sieve, small bite sized lumps will be there in final mysore pak.
  3. One string consistency of sugar syrup is also important.
  4. To find the consistency of melting magic is difficult. So make to keep the flame in low, when the mysore pak is bubbling.
  5. First it will be jelly like, don't stop at this stage. It will be somewhat like palkova and you can scoop the entire mixture with ladle to center, this is the consistency.
