Mysore Pak/ Soft Mysore Pak- Krishna Sweets Style| Diwali Special Recipes

Today we enjoyed my first ever mutton biriyani for lunch along with chicken fry and Paal payasam. This time I haven't clicked mutton biriyani since it was the first time. I will be trying it again to post it here soon :). Met my friends after a long time and we had a great weekend. And, coming to today's diwali special recipe, Mysore Pak. It was a dream come true after trying this recipe. It tasted really like the one we get in shops as soft mysore pak. I tried this long back, but was waiting in my drafts this long. 

Ingredients:
Besan Flour (Kadala Maavu) - 1 Cup
Sugar - 1 Cup
Ghee - 1 Cup 
Water - 1/4 cup
Method:
1. In a non stick pan, add a tsp of ghee and roast the besan flour until  a nice aroma comes (for 3 to 4 mins). Then sieve it to remove lumps. When you sieve, break the balls that are formed because of roasting in ghee. In a mixing bowl, transfer the flour and add 3/4 Cup of the ghee. Mix it well.
2. The batter will be in running consistency, set it aside until we prepare the sugar syrup. Grease a plate with ghee and keep it ready. (I used my Borosil square bowl). In a pan, add the sugar and 1/4 Cup water.
3. Stir it until the sugar dissolves. After that stop stirring and bring it to boil. Check for One String Consistency, if you take the sugar syrup between your thumb and index finger it should form a string. (You can check my Motichoor Ladoo for detailed One String Consistency). Now add the besan ghee mixture to the sugar syrup and stir continuously. In low flame, add the remaining 1/4 cup ghee in intervals and stir continuously.
4. At one stage, the mixture will start leaving the pan without sticking to the bottom as shown in the picture below. Switch off the flame. Transfer it to the greased pan, it will spread by itself while pouring. Just tap it once for even spreading. Cut into squares or diamonds when it is hot.
The yummy soft Mysore pak is ready and can be served as diwali goodies to your friends and family.
Points to remember:
  • The one string consistency is the important step in getting soft Mysore pak. So check it carefully.
  • If you need thicker pieces like we get in the shops, transfer it to a small plate and slice.
  • Slice it immediately after pouring to the greased plate to get clean sides of the pieces. I was a little late, so some pieces have irregular sides.
Warm Regards,
