How to cook?
  1. Dry roast the besan over a low medium flame till a nice aroma comes , without changing its colour. Seive the flour to remove the lumps if any.
  2. In a thick bottomed kadai,add sugar and water, make syrup till it reaches a soft ball consistency. Sprinkle the flour & milk powder gradually over the syrup, stirring continuously till it gets blended well with the syrup.
  3. Once it gets thickened slightly, add hot melted ghee 2 tbspn at a time. Keep stirring over a medium flame.When the besan mixture is frothy with lots of bubbles & starts leaving the sides, transfer it immediately to a greased plate.
  4. Level it using a flat bottomed cup & cut it into pieces.For the above given quantity,we get 20 medium sized pieces.
  • The sugar syrup consistency and the final stage are important to get the mysore pak soft.If these are overdone, mysore pak will become hard.
