Mysore Pak (Soft)

Again another day for Potluck Party Cyber Style for this month. Everybody are very excited about their dishes made by others.
And this time, my partner was Archana. She made Mysore Pak. and it was my turn to make her dish. I always had in my mind to make Mysore Pak, because of its difficulty , I never tried and always kept last in my list.
I have seen many variations on Mysore Pak recipes . But,I followed Archana's procedure just variation in measurement. You can change your measurement according to your need.because all are equal ratio (For eg 1:1:1 for sugar,oil/ghee/gram flour) except water ,It should be 1/4th ratio of Sugar so that you will get one string consistency syrup.

So let us see how to make Mysore Pak. Trust me girls, take out phobia of making Mysore Pak from your mind, it is very easy and quick recipe, although you need patience to make
this recipe. :)


Gram Flour 11/2 Cup
Sugar  2 Cup
Water 1/2 Cup
Oil 1 Cup
Melted Ghee 1 Cup
Saffron 1 pinch (Optional)
Cardamom Powder 1/2 tsp (Optional)

Required Equipments

1 Big Plate
1 Strainer
Greased Cake Tin/or Casserole
1 Wooden Ladle
1 Round Ladle
2 Non Stick Pans


First of take one small non stick pan. Add together oil and Ghee and heat on Medium-High temperature.
Meanwhile,take a plate, sieve gram flour and add 2-3 tbsp of hot oil/ghee. And mix well. The texture should be like crumbs. And sieve again . This process will help not to stick or form lumps when you add in sugar syrup.
Take a another non stick pan. Add sugar and water in it and make one string consistency syrup.
You can test this by dropping one drop of syrup in cold water and it should form small ball over it.Once syrup is ready,
You can add Cardamom powder and Saffron this stage.
add gram flour in it. Keep stir to avoid to form any bubbles/lumps .This stage temperature should be at low-medium level.
Once it is mix properly, spread hot oil on the top of mixture evenly, it should form froth on the top it.
and mix again. Once ghee/oil get absorbs, add 2-3 spoonful(ladle) on the top of the mixture.
Again mix well.
You have to be very careful at this stage/step. You may need to use 2 hands or help from other.
Keep you hot oil, on your left hand side and keep stirring with right hand side.

You need to judge yourselves whether mixture ready or not. My tip is when you
put wooden ladle in it, it should divide the paste and also you can see the bottom of the pan.

Once it is done, switch off your stove and pour the mixture on the greased tin/casserole.
Pat on the top to make one level. Keep aside to cool down little.
Don't cool down for more time, because you need to cut the pieces.
Cut into pieces after 5-7 mins time duration. And your Mysore pak is ready.
