1/2 cup oil

1 tsp ghee for greasing


For mysore pak

  1. For {span class="bold1"}mysore pak{/span}, heat the ghee and oil in a non-stick sauce pan for 2 minutes or till the ghee melts completely.
  2. Meanwhile to make sugar syrup for {span class="bold1"}mysore pak{/span}, combine the sugar and ½ cup of water in a deep non-stick pan and mix well. Cook on a medium flame for 5 minutes until it reaches 1 string consistency, while stirring continuously.
  3. Reduce the flame to low and add approx. ¼ cup of besan to this sugar syrup and immediately start stirring with a whisk. Continue mixing well using the whisk until the besan mixes well with the sugar syrup and no lumps remain.
  4. Repeat this procedure of adding besan and whisking 3 more times till all the besan has been mixed well with the sugar syrup. This would take around 2 minutes 30 seconds.
  5. Now increase the flame from low to medium and add a ladle of the hot oil-ghee mixture to the besan-sugar syrup mixture and immediately start stirring with a wooden ladle.
  6. Keep mixing continuously using the ladle until the besan-sugar syrup mixture has absorbed all the oil-ghee mixture.
  7. Repeat this procedure 5 to 6 more times till all the oil-ghee mixture has been mixed well with the besan-sugar syrup mixture.
  8. Once the entire oil-ghee mixture has been mixed well, the mixture would immediately turn frothy. This would take around 5 minutes 30 seconds. The consistency is a pale yellow color mixture which is slightly frothy and does not absorb any more oil.
  9. Immediately transfer the mixture into a greased 10” x 6” tin.
  10. Gently even out the mixture of {span class="bold1"}mysore pak{/span} in the tin using the same flat ladle and keep aside to rest for approx. 5 minutes so that it cools down slightly.
  11. While the mixture is still warm, cut the {span class="bold1"}indian sweet mysore pak{/span} into 14 equal rectangular pieces using a sharp knife.
  12. Leave it in the tin to cool completely at room temperature for 1 hour.
  13. Then loosen the edges of {span class="bold1"}mysore pak{/span} using a knife and invert the tin on a clean flat surface or a board.
