Mysore Pak Recipe - Soft Krishna Sweets Style Mysore Pak

Mysore Pak - I just love it anytime and had never believed that I could make this at home.The moment I saw vardhini post it , I wanted to try it as her stepwise was so clear and I felt confident about making it. My daughter loves Sri Krishna Sweets mysore pak and thats the main reason I wanted to try it , yes she loved it and asked for more :) This version is very soft not exactly same as SKS as the ghee doesnt ooze out, but tastes very close to it.
Mysore Pak Recipe
The first time I tried, everything came out perfect except that I found a slightest raw smell of besan(only I cud feel it snd was not sure where I went wrong) so when I tried it the next time for posting I followed an extra step of roasting and then sieving it...voila!! it was apt both texture and tastewise. Sure this is going to be my keeper.

Mysore Pak Recipe
This version of Mysore Pa / Mysore Pak is very easy to make even for a beginner.Trust me if I had got it right the vey first time am sure everyone can get it right...So get ahead to make this easy mysore recipe.

Mysore Pak Recipe

Mysore Pak Recipe - Ingredients

Preparation Time : 10 mins | Cooking Time : 20 mins | Makes : 12 small pieces
Recipe Category: Sweet | Recipe Cuisine: South Indian| Recipe Reference: Cooks Joy

Besan - 1 cup
Sugar - 1 cup
Ghee - 1 cup (3/4 cup in flour + 1/4 cup while stirring)
Water - 1/4 cup

Method:

  1. Add a tsp of ghee in a nonstick pan, add besan flour and roast it till a nice aroma comes say for 3-4mins. Then sieve it once such that there are no lumps found. Now in a bowl, add 3/4 cup ghee with roasted besan flour and mix well.
    How to make mysore pak - Step1
  2. The ghee besan mixture will be slightly in pouring consistency. Set aside for 15mins.Meanwhile grease a plate with little ghee and set aside. Now in a nonstick pan add sugar and water, in medium flame, bring it to a boil and check for one-string consistency - If you take the sugar syrup between the thumb and the index finger a single string will form thats the correct consistency.

  3. Now add the besan ghee mixture to the sugar syrup. Now add the remaining 1/4 cup ghee in intervals to avoid drying and mix well. Keep stirring continuously.

  4. Now keep the flame in low and keep mixing, add little ghee. Can you see in the below pictures it will first stick while scrapping with the laddle.
    How to make mysore pak - Step4
  5. At one stage, it will come as a ball without sticking at all. The mixture will not be sticky anymore. At this stage switch off and pour it in the ghee greased plate. Dont need to flatten it, it will spread beautifully by itself. Cut it into squares/diamonds as per your wish while its hot and enjoy your mysore pak.I poured it in a big plate so my slices were thin as I wanted them that way. You can select the plate accordingly. Be very careful in checking the final consistency else your mysore pak will not be soft.
    How to make mysore pak - Step5
The slices is purely your choice you can either make it thin like this or pour it in a smaller plate to thick slices like in sweet shops, either way its good.
Mysore Pak Recipe

My Notes:

  • The 2 steps you have to be very careful are:Checking the one string consistency of the sugar syrup and final mysore pak consistency
  • Also keep in low flame while stirring
  • The color of the mysore pak also depends on the besan flour. The flour we get here is nice deep yellow.

    ReplyDelete
  53. Sharmi,

    I wanted to ask you something. Do you have an idea about the aailability of pastry sheets in India? I assume you live in Chennai Are they available there? I tried various retailers in Bangaore with no luck. How do you usually make puffs at home?

    ReplyDelete
  54. @Sheeja : I havent got any luck too, am in CBE and I dont find it here and havent tried making puffs, at home...will let you if I find an alternate way :)

    ReplyDelete
  55. Hi Sharmi

    I tried this Mysore Pak. but unfortunately, it was so hard, tell me, how much time, approximately i have to stir after pouring the besan flour mix?

    ReplyDelete
  56. As you say it was hard my guess is : You must have left a little more for sugar syrup else missed the last stage.

    Going by the time will surely not work....it will mislead you. So its best to test the texture, it should be a thick mass more like a pulp but in flowing consistency , it will be totally non-sticky at this stage - this is the correct stage you should switch it off.Hope this helps!

    ReplyDelete
  57. Hi Sharmi,

    I tried the Mysore Pak and it came out really well.. everybody liked it in my office and specially my mom ( who usually doesnt get satisfied with my sweets preparation style )... many asked for the recipe and I have given your link for reference.. Thanks for the recipe.. :) Keep rocking with ur recipes...

    Please post the recipe for Soft chappathis.. I know this is very basic but whenever I make it , it comes out crispy like pappads and I have to break it to eat :( ...

    ReplyDelete
  58. @Veni : I'm glad to know that it turned out great. I am just back from trying SKS version of mysore pak and now here you are with ur lovely comment....am really happy that everyone liked it :)

  62. i tried ur receipe but it was hard and i felt some bitterness at the end..i dnt kno y..is i hav to add more sugar...

    ReplyDelete
  63. Hi sharmi
    I tried making it .
    but the texture did not come any near to this !!
    it was hard and the colour also a bit more dark.
    by the waay as u mentione in the poost that the batter spreads by itself once we pour on to the greased plate.
    but it did nt happen
    and I had tough time spreading it with a spatula.
    result was unever surfaced mysore paks.
    i checked the one string consistency of the syrup !!
    what must ve gone wrong !!!

    ReplyDelete
  64. @mitha : It will sure spread by itself if taken in the right consistency...As I've said the last atge must be in flowing but thick mass consistency. I guess the last stage must have been missed, you should have taken a bit earlier...hope this helps!

    ReplyDelete
  65. @Viji : I guess you might have left out the final consistency or the sugar syrup consistency...but the sugar quantity mentioned was apt....Guess the bitterness was also becos of the consistency problem...

    ReplyDelete
  66. I was wondering whether water was sufficient enough !!!
    so You mean that I must have overdone it right ?

    ReplyDelete
  67. Hi Sharmilee

    Instead of mentioning
    •Besan - 1 cup
    •Sugar - 1 cup
    •Ghee - 1 cup (3/4 cup in flour + 1/4 cup while stirring)
    •Water - 1/4 cup

    Please mention it by weight i.e sugar 500gram like that

    ReplyDelete
  68. @Jasmine : I always go with cup measures and dont use a kitchen scale for these...You can use any cup for measuring but use the same cup for measuring others too......Hope this helps!

    ReplyDelete
  69. Hi Sharmi....wonderful recipe, thank you! I think I fell for your pics, I absolutely had to try it. Thanks for such a simple recipe!! Here's my post - http://whatdoimake.blogspot.com/2011/10/deepavali-2011-contd-sweet-mysore-pak.html

  70. Btw any thoughts on the amount of water? I talk about that in my post.

  74. Thank you for the Great pictures, first time I did it everything crumbled when I added the flour mixture... I think I let the correct consistency pass for the sugar. Tried it again and it came out beautiful, just like in the picture. Thank you for the wonderful recipe and the step by step pictures, couldn't have done it without them... Illakiya

  77. Hi, My mum has been making mysore pak since I was a kid, though the procedure was different..I tried ur method and it was just awesome...All loved it...I too have taken clicks and will be posting them in my album on Facebook..thanks for the gr8 recipes

    ReplyDelete
  78. Hi I have a cup with a tag saying 250ml. SO shall i take 1 cup od besan, 1 cup of sugar and 1 cup of unmelted ghee? bez 1 cup of sugar will be more in weight than compared to 1 cup of besan, So will that work?

    ReplyDelete
  79. I also do the same method for making mysore pak. But you need to add the heated ghee into the gram flour and need to mix well with wooden spoon. so we can avoid the raw smell of flour.

    ReplyDelete
  80. @Priya : Yes you can use the same cup....I did the same too.

    @Jamuna : This recipe is slightly different and didnt call for adding hot ghee but have used the same method as you have said for my ghee mysore pak which will be posted in few mins. Anyways thanks for the tip :)

    1. hai sharmi..whats the difference between this recepie and ghee mysore pak version ? which one tastes superior?..this recepie came out excellent when i tried @first time. also tell me which one will be economical if need to be done @ larger quantity?

      Delete
    2. Both the recipes have a different texture and taste...I love both of them but this is a easy and economical version as the consistency was easy to reach and find for me....Hope this helps!

  88. Dear Sister,
    I am a male bachelor and new to cooking. I tried this recipe and the result was amazing. Everyone in my home was surprised. The flour - sugar - ghee ratio is too good that we ate double the number of mysore paks and believe me all the mysore paks are over by now. For diwali I have to make it once again. :-)

    No words would be suffice to thank you for your effort in helping people like me......
    Keep rocking..... & HAPPY DIWALI to you and ur family..... Convey my special wishes to Mittu

  89. Happy Diwali to you and your family Sharmi ! This website is wonderful and very easy to navigate. The recipes also look delicious.
