Here’s how to make Mysore Pak with step by step photos…


Besan Flour/Kadalai Maavu
1 cup
1 cup
1 cup
2 cups
½ cup
Preparation time: 15 minutes      
Cooking time: 20 minutes
Makes: 25-30 pieces


Grease a plate [3-4 inches deep] with ghee and keep it aside. Mix oil and ghee in a bowl and keep it aside. Sieve the besan flour and keep it aside.

Heat a kadai and roast the besan flour until raw smell vanishes. Make sure you do it low flame and do not burn the besan flour.

Now to make the sugar syrup, add sugar to a heavy bottomed kadai. Add water and mix well.

Let the sugar syrup come to rolling boil. Check the single thread consistency by adding a drop of syrup into a small bowl of water. It will settle down without dissolving in the water or take a drop of sugar syrup between index finger and thumb a single string will form.

Now this is the correct consistency, the sugar syrup will look frothy. Add the besan flour little by little and stir continuously without forming any lumps.

Slowly add the oil & ghee mixture while stirring continuously. Do not add all the ghee mixture at the same time. Add one ladle at a time and stir the besan flour mixture, it will turn frothy and bubbly.

The besan flour mixture will absorb all the ghee & oil mixture and at one point the ghee will start to float and besan flour mixture will start to leave the sides of the pan.

Now switch off the stove and transfer the mixture to the greased plate. Flatten the surface with a greased flat spatula. Let it rest for 2-3 minutes and cut it into diamonds with sharp knife.

Let it cool down completely, remove the mysore pak pieces from the tray.

Enjoy this traditional, porous and mouth-watering mysore pak. You can store these mysore pak in air tight containers and enjoy them for up to 15 days. But believe it or not these are so addictive that you and your family members will finish it off very fast. Do not forget to check out other traditional festival sweets and snacks here
