Ingredients for Mysore Pak Recipe

  • Gram Flour 3/4 cups

  • Sugar 4 cups


Step 1

Cook without stirring for about five minutes or till it reaches single thread consistency.

Step 4

Add half a cup of hot pure ghee to the syrup and stir, add gram flour gradually stirring all the while to prevent any lump formation.

Continue this process till all the ghee is used up and you get a pleasant sweet and a roasted gram flour aroma. Pour this on the greased tray.
