Mysore Pak



Ingredients

 I cup Gram flour(Chickpea flour)
1 cup Ghee (clarified butter)
1½ cup cooking oil
2 cups of  sugar
½ cup water
Pinch of salt




Preparation
1. Mix the gram flour with ½ cup of oil and a pinch of salt.
2. Mix 1 cup ghee and 1 cup of oil together.
3. In a wide heavy bottom pan or in a non stick pan add sugar and water.
4. Use any square or rectangular cake pan with sides around and Grease completely with Ghee.





Method
Boil the sugar and water on a medium flame until the syrup reaches one string consistency (to check one string consistency  keep one drop of syrup in between your index and thumb finger and separate your fingers, the syrup drop will form one string)


Next add the Gram flour and oil mix into the sugar syrup.

Once the Gram flour mix is completely mixed with the sugar syrup start adding 2 tbsp of oil/ghee mix at intervals.

Keep stirring continuously.

In sometime the gram flour mix will start to leave the side of the pan, now immediately stop cooking and pour the mix in a prepared greased pan. Don’t press the mixture just spread and smooth the surface.

Allow  cool for 10 minutes and cut into preferred shape.

Once cooled completely separate the Mysore Pak and serve.
