To make Mysore Pak you need

2 cups – brown sugar
2 cups – ghee
1 cup water
How to Prepare Mysore White
- First, heat ghee in kadhai. Heat the ghee until it is slightly hot. Now take the gram flour and sift it into a mixing bowl. Now add 2-3 tablespoons of hot ghee to the gram flour and mix well.
- Also, you need to prepare syrup. Take a thick bottomed kadhai and add brown sugar/sugar. Add a cup of water and cook over medium heat until the brown sugar/sugar is completely melted. Continue stirring the syrup. Once the brown sugar/sugar is completely melted, simmer for another 2 minutes over medium heat. We don’t need to boil the syrup until it reaches skewer consistency.
- Now, slowly pour the prepared gram flour and ghee mixture into the syrup, stirring constantly. Remember that this mixture must be cooked on a low heat, stirring the mixture constantly. After stirring the mixture on low heat for about 10 minutes, add 1 tablespoon of ghee.
- Stir the mixture constantly. When you cook the mixture over low heat, a bubble-like structure will begin to appear in the mixture. After simmering for about 15 minutes, add 2 tablespoons of ghee and mix well. It is necessary to mix the ghee well with the gram flour mixture to get a smooth and grainy texture in Mysore Pak. Otherwise, the resulting sweet Mysore Pak will look more and more like Barfi.
- Add the remaining ghee after 5 minutes. As you continue to cook the mixture over low heat, you will see the ghee mixed into the gram flour. Continue to cook until the ghee starts to separate from the pan. The entire process may take 35 to 40 minutes on a low flame. Once you see the ghee separating from the pan, turn off the gas and place the entire mixture on a greased plate.
- Spread the mixture evenly in the tray. Let this mixture cool. When hot, make cut marks on it. This way you can get Mysore Pak with the correct shape and edges. Melt-in-your-mouth soft and delicious Mysore Pak is ready.
