Ingredients

  • 1 cup Gram flour | besan | kadalai maavu
  • 1 cup ghee
  • 1 cup sugar

Instructions

  • 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.
  • Once done sieve the flour nicely.
  • This step is a must as it will give a smooth texture to the mysore pak.
  • Mix this sifted besan with 3/4th cup of ghee and make a smooth paste out of it. Ghee should not be hot.
  • 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 pak.
  • 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.
  • 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.

Notes

  1. One string consistency is a must and be careful not to miss it out.
  2. At last also, when the mixture doesn’t get stick to the bottom transfer it to the greased plate.
  3. If it overcooked even for few minutes mysore pak will not be soft.

 

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.

step 6 step 7

  1. My mouth is watering Jeyashri will surely try a different version of this. How can I forget? me binging on soft mysorepak while in Karnataka you reminded me of this traditional sweet thanks a ton 🙂

  2. surely trying it, i never do mysore pags due to ghee, as far as i was told, its 1 measure kadalai maavu, 3 sugar and 3 ghee, (its scary right (: }will try this thks jai.

  3. mysore pak does looks like krishna sweets. when we say mysore pak first thing pops is u have to add lots of ghee. i think ur version has little bit less. great. advance deepavalli wishes.

  10. Tried this just now…results were amazing! Just that it did not have the golden hue as you've shown it…may be i need to roast the besan a little more! This recipe is for keeps! Thank you!

    • Can u please elaborate what happened to you. I have tried it so many times and never failed. Even i have many readers tried out this recipe and came out perfect.
      Please elaborate

  11. Hi..I have tried Msore pak at least 10 times and it has never come out right. Today, I tried it by following your recipe to the T. The sweet came out so soft that I am super thrilled. Been giving everyone (including maids :)) coming home. Thank you so much for sharing this recipe.

  12. hi jeya,

    as said I made the pieces it came out well but at the corners it is hard I think I should have added the besan ghee mix before a minute I guess rest it tastes so good..

    thanks

  13. Hi jeya. Made mysorepak. It tasted perfect but it became too soft. All the pieces were stuck together. Had to eat it with a spoon 🙁 but I'm going to make it again..will cook it for a few more mins this time

  14. Hi Jeyashri, Thank you for sharing this recipe. I gave this recipe to my aunt to surprise her sambandhi for her daughter's first Diwali (thala Diwali) . It turned out really super! She thanked me like anything. All credit goes to you

  15. 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.

  16. 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?

    • 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

  17. Hi!…J…I'm so frustrated.. I love this mysorepaak…tried twice yesterday…failed both times… following recipe exactly.what am I doing wrong? 1st time like caramels…I swear I did only till 1 string….2 nd time soft n chewy..almost same as 1 st time…is there any way of saving these…and I am determined to make them right…any advice…so mad at myself for not getting this!!!! Yours look yum…

  18. Hi!Jeyashri,love ur recipes. Don't know y my last post did not post about the mysorepaak. I tried the recipe 3 times n failed!! Then on the 4th day…I said let me give it one more try!! It worked…my dream of making mysorepaak finally came true!! It was not smooth , a bit grainy..so I think I need not to stir the sugar syrup..will try again..till I can perfect it..how would you make Horlicks mysorepaak..? Can't wait to see that n try it…thanx for ur super helpful recipes.

  19. Hi! J..disaster again…did everything so carefully. .but..I changed..the besan..did 1/2 besan and 1/2 horlicks..also..I think I over did the sugar syrup to softball or more…again got caramels!!! Was so scared that one string was not yet there..and I failed again…will try again after few days….looks like the key is in that one string…I kept testing. .looked like one string…hmmm…

    • Hi, the sugar consistency is the key, please refer my detailed post on that. i have given the link in the post and also in the steps too. Also use only besan, i have tried with horlicks and not sure about the texture too

  20. Update!!!
    Till now tried this about 12 times, only came out twice!! This is my fav..but y doesn't it work every time. .going nuts…today again like caramel..so I reheated and put a bit of water to melt it back..ouch…now like halwa!!! Tomorrow is my bday..that's y I thought I would try. .no luck..I know it works coz it's come out OK twice..what am I doing wrong. ? Monday I start back on my diet so no more MP!! On the happy side ..it's a real tasty halwa!!

    • hi sara, Since it came out well 2 times, i think some mistake is happening in the way you are making it. I have tried this many times but never flopped. Will surely post a detailed video on this mysore pak soon ,which will be helpful for you

    • Plz. Post video..super helpful..
      UPDATE..made it this morning. .came out perfect!!!
