What is Ghee Mysore pak?

Ghee Mysore pak is an authentic Indian dish prepared with ghee, besan/gram flour and sugar as the main ingredient. It is very popular south Indian dessert recipe from Mysore district of Karnataka state. Delicious Mysore Pak also has very funny history of preparing it, It was originally prepared during the period of The maharaja or king of Mysore, Krishnaraja Wodeyar. His chef Kakasura Madappa was the actual founder and and named it as Mysore pak when asked. You can also refer history if you want more details about it.

Variations of mysore pak

Mysore Pak has two variations – one is soft mysore pak and other is little hard. In this recipe I have prepared soft mysore pak. The only difference between those is the texture. To get the soft consistency the amount of sugar and water to make sugar syrup is more in the hard mysore pak, also the ghee should be hot when you make hard mysore pak. Although the ingredients are almost same but it is also prepared quite differently in the states like Tamil nadu, Andhra Pradesh and Telngana. In few places it is also served as hot fudge. But you can always try your own variation. Experiment with it but be careful so that you don’t spoil the whole sweet.
