MYSORE PAK RECIPE | DIWALI SWEET RECIPES| SOFT MYSORE PAK

This is the first time i am making Mysore Pak , but to my surprise it turned out extremely well and tasted exactly like Krishna Sweets Mysore pak. I made few batches and packed for my friends when i visited them during Navaratri. When i was searching in google for mysore pak recipes most of the recipes which i have come seen involves 2-3 cups of Ghee. And i finally i landed in Vardhini's space . Go ahead to try this delicious soft Mysore pak for this Diwali and surprise your family and friends.
Mysore pak 3
INGREDEINTS: (YIELDS APPROX. 10 PIECES)
BESAN |KADALAIMAAVU 1 CUP
MELTED GHEE 1 CUP
SUGAR 1 CUP
Mysore pak 2
METHOD:
  • Keep a tray greased with ghee.
  • In a pan, preferably non stick add a tsp of ghee and roast the  besan in a medium low flame till it emits a nice aroma. It will take 10 minutes. Though the original recipe doesn’t have this step ,as far as i have made the google search most of the recipes have included this step.
mysore pak step 1 step 2
  • Once done sieve the flour nicely.
  • This step is a must as it will give a smooth texture to the mysore pak.
step 3 step 4
  • Mix this sifted besan with 3/4th cup of ghee and make a smooth paste out of it.
step 5
  • In a deep wide pan,preferably non stick, add the sugar and add 1/2 cup of water.
  • Once sugar gets dissolved stop stirring and boil till this reach one string consistency.
  • You can check the one thread  consistency of the syrup between the thumb and the index finger.
  • Once it reaches the right consistency, add the ghee and besan paste which we mixed together. The consistency is more important else you will get hard or crumbled mysore paks.
step 6 step 7
  • Now keep the flame in medium low and stir continuously adding the remaining 1/4 cup ghee at frequent intervals.
  • Stir it nicely till it leaves the sides of the pan and doesn’t get stick to the bottom.
step 8 step 10
  • At this stage transfer it to the greased plate. It will spread smoothly.
  • Cut it into pieces with a knife or a pizza cutter when it is warm.
step 11 step 12

The entire process took just 20 minutes and as mentioned in the original recipe after adding the besan mixture to the sugar syrup it took less than 10 minutes for the mysore pak to get ready.
Mysore pak 1           
Note:
  • One string consistency is a must and be careful not to miss it out .
  • At last also, when the mixture doesn’t gets stick to the bottom transfer it to the greased plate.
  • If it over cooked even for few minutes mysore pak will not be soft.
Will try to update a Video of mysore pak before Diwali.

  50. Hi Jeyshri,

    This is the first time am trying mysore pak, to my surprise and shock, it came out great, it was melting in mouth mysorepak. Thank you jeyshri. Also, i somehow found the 1 string consistency. Good work.

    ReplyDelete
  51. Hello Jeyashri:

    Thank you very much. I enjoy your posts.

    The mysorepak came out well but I also get the besan flour taste and the bitterness of the flour at the end. Also, the roasting, even in low flame, starts to brown the flour. I could not get the glowing yellow colour that you get. What did I do wrong?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Thanks for the comment Shoba. The smell and colour purely depends on the quality of besan. Sometimes we never know on seeing it. It happened for me also when i bought a besan once. Nothing turned out well out of that besan. .So no wrong in the method
