Mysore Pak

Mysore Pak has been one of my all time favorite sweets that my mother prepares. She made them often as an evening snack and I just wouldn’t wait to lay my hands on them even before they cooled.



Besan/ Gram Flour – 1 cup
Sugar – 2 cups
Ghee – 2 cups + 2 tbsp
Water – 1 cup


  • Sieve the flour to remove lumps
  • Heat 2 tbsp of ghee in a pan and add the flour. Fry the flour till there is a slight change in color and remove from heat
  • Add water and sugar to a pan on medium heat.  Cook until sugar dissolves and comes to a sticky consistency (It should from threads between your fingers)
  • Add the flour and stir continuously
  • Heat ghee and keep it warm and melted on low heat
  • When the flour and sugar mixture starts boiling, start adding ghee gradually (When ghee is added, the mixture should froth)
  • Keep stirring while adding the remaining ghee
  • When its close to done, the mixture becomes thick and starts to leave the sides of the pan. When you add a small drop of the mixture in water, it should form a ball immediately
  • When done, pour the mixture into the desired bowl or tray that has been brushed with ghee
  • After cooling, cut into desired shape
