- Kadalai Maavu/gram flour – 1 cup
- Sugar – 2 cups
- Water – 2 cups
- Ghee – 3 cups
- Add very hot ghee and gram flour well. Beat the lumps if any and make a homogeneous mixture. The consistency should as of idli batter.
- In a pan, add sugar and water. Make sugar syrup of 1 string consistency.
- Mix the sugar syrup to the gram flour batter. Be careful in this step. Mix gram flour-ghee mixture little by little.
- Now add the ghee remaining to it and fold the batter well.
- Cook it in low flame till the ghee starts to ooze out and the mixture starts bubbling.
- Grease a plate with ghee.
- Carefully pour the mixture in the plate and tap the plate for the batter to spread uniformly.
- Cut them into small pieces (square, rectangle or diamond) of your choice. Allow it to harden.
- Serve the super mouth melting mysore pak.
- Melt the ghee before using.
- The color of the mysore pak depends on the color of the gram flour.
- The string consistency of the sugar syrup is very important. It will only decide the texture of the mysore pak.
- Ghee oozes out slightly at the time of marking pieces and it is fully absorbed when cooled down.
- Add the melted ghee little by little to the gram flour and mix it well. Because the gram flour will absorb the ghee soon and the batter consistency will not be attained.
