Mysore Pak is a popular South Indian dessert from Mysore.It is said to be originated from the royal kitchen of Mysore Palace.
It takes just 20 mins to make this delicacy with just 3 ingredients.(chickpea flour,ghee , sugar).Since ghee is the main ingredient, make sure to use good quality ghee.Some add oil along with ghee,but I don’t prefer that oil dripping store made Mysore Pak.
The richness of ghee adds a distinct flavour and texture that makes it melt in mouth.Do not skip to roast the chickpea flour for it gives a granular texture to the sweet.
Do not get tempted to increase the flame,always maintain low flame .Use heavy bottomed pan, kadai or non stick pan to make work easier.
Do make this incredible sweet and enjoy it with your family and friends!
