Mysore Pak

This is a very traditional sweet.I like this a lot.My cousin came to my place for this weekend and i wanted to make something i made this and it was so tasty though i didn't get the perfect shape.All my friends liked it.


Besan--------------1 cup
Ghee---------------2 cups
Sugar--------------2 cups

Lightly fry the besan till the raw smell goes off.
Add sugar to boiling water to make the sugar syrup(syrup should be like thin string)
Add the fried besan and mix it thoroughly.Add ghee in steps.
Keep on stirring continuously .
When it comes off of the vessel,remove from heat and transfer to a plate greased with ghee.
After it cooled down cut into pieces.

You can taste very good mysore pak.If you want it to be more soft add little more ghee.You will love this .

mmm. mysore pak makes me nostalgic. My mom makes perfect mysore paks. I always end up with mysore halwa instead of mysore pak (he he!) Your mysore paks look so delicious.
