Karupatti Mysore pak

Traditional Mysore pak recipe made using Karupatti | palm jaggery, instead of white sugar, recipe with full video and step by step pictures. Generally Mysore pak is made widely in many houses for Deepavali. I have posted the traditional Ghee mysore pak and also the Sri krishna style soft mysore pak recipes in Jeyashris kitchen. Last year i tried Karupatti Kaju katli which turned to be a super hit. This Karupatti Mysore pak also i tried last year also, but somehow couldn’t crack the right recipe. This year also i tried the karupatti mysore pak twice following the same recipe of my Soft mysore pak, but somehow it was coming out fudgy only. When i tried the Karachi halwa with Karupatti, following my corn flour halwa recipe, i found it was less sweeter than the one with sugar. Then i thought i will try this Karupatti Mysore pak by adding little extra measure of Karupatti. Then finally i got it right. Even for this recipe, i should have taken it 2 minutes before, from the pan. But the taste and texture was perfect. For friends in Singapore, you can use the Gula melaka available in Local shops and Fair price too.

Notes

1. Ensure that the one string consistency has come, else the mysore pak won't hold the shape. 2. The thick idli batter consistency is the right stage to transfer the mixture to a greased plate.

Can we follow the same steps and replace normal jaggery instead of palm jaggery?

I haven’t tried with jaggery, so can’t say really how the outcome will be.

Hi Thanks for the recipe . I tried this for diwali and it came out very well .
Now when I tried again , the mysore pak has become chewy and little hard .
But could have went wrong ? . string consistency or final stage ?

Hi, Thanks for trying out. Regarding your doubt, it could be in string consistency but at times, if you take it out from the pan earlier in the final stage, it will become chewy. But if it is the second one, you can put it back to the pan again and cook for 2-3 minutes extra, it will set. But if the syrup consistency is not right, you can’t fix it.
