Mysore Pak

When I was a small child I didn’t like much of the baker sweets but Mysore pak was one of my favorite. I could eat it whenever I got it. So recently I thought why not try to make it on my own! And I tried and succeeded. This recipe is a breezer guys. Honestly I never expected it to be so simple, easy and better than what we get from the bakeries. So let’s get cooking 🙂.


Cooking Time:
35:00 Min

Heavy bottomed pan, ladle, tray


Mysore Pak

  • Chickpea flour( Besan/ kadalamavu) | 1 cup
  • Sugar | 1 cup
  • Ghee | 1 cup
  • Water | ¼ cup
  • Sugar for sprinkling (optional) | 1-2 tsp

How to Cook!

Step – 1

  1. Dry roast the flour for 1-2 minutes.
  2. Sift and keep the flour ready to remove any lumps.
  3. Grease your tray ready to pour the Mysore pak mixture.

Step – 2

  1. In a thick bottomed saucepan add sugar and water.
  2. Bring it to a boil. Keep a close watch. You want the syrup to be one string consistency.
  3. Lower the flame to a medium and slowly add the sifted besan while stirring continuously.The mixture should be smooth and free of lumps.
  4. Add 2-3 tbsp of ghee; keep on stirring until all the ghee is absorbed.
  5. Repeat instruction 4 until all the ghee is over.
  6. When you are adding the last batch of ghee it might not get absorbed, this shows that your mysore pak is almost ready.
  7. When the mixture turns pale and frothy remove it from flame and pour into the greased tray.
  8. You need not smoothen the top, the mixture will spread by itself if everything you have done is right.
  9. Sprinkle the sugar(optional).
  10. Leave cuts on the Mysore pak before it hardens. 
  11. Let it cool completely. Your melt in mouth Mysore pak is ready to be served:).
