Festive season is on and Ganesh Chaturthi is near to come. This time I thought to make something different to celebrate this festival instead of modak. So many traditional Indian sweets can make and offered to lord Ganesha to make him happy.
This time try my hands in aromatic freshly homemade ghee Mysore Pak Recipe. Mysore Pak is an Indian sweet prepared in ghee from Karnataka India. It is Originated in Mysore. Made with generous amount of ghee, sugar, gram flour and often cardamom.
Mysore Pak was first prepared in the kitchen of the Mysore palace by a palace cook named kakasura Madappa. Palace cook made a concoction of gram flour, ghee and sugar. And simply made this dish. When asked him it's name, Madappa had nothing in his mind that time and he simply called it the Mysore Pak in Kannada which means sweet. It is traditionally served in wedding and other festivals of southern India, and is very popular in baby shower as well.
Recipe of Mysore Pak is made with generous amount of ghee and roasted gram flour and some add oil for good texture. Sometimes colour is different may be quality of besan is one reason. But aromatic melted in mouth recipe will definitely make sure you will try this recipe in coming festivals.. [description source Wikipedia].
