Mysore Pak – Diwali Sweets

mysore pak

Diwali means celebration, new clothes, crackers and most important of all… SWEETS. Mysore pak is a famous South Indian sweet that one can find in most homes for Diwali. Mysore pak is a sweet made with bengal gram flour, sugar and lots of ghee. My mother prepares this Mysore Pak every year during Diwali. My mom’s  Mysore pak will be crispy and light. But now we prefer eating soft Mysore paks as we get in the famous sweet shops. To obtain soft mysore pak, we have to add more ghee and remove the mixture from flame before it gets too thick. Here is a step-by-step procedure to make soft and tasty Mysore pak.

  11. Immediately remove from fire and transfer to a greased plate. If the mixture is cooked too long, the ghee will start seperating and you'll get crispy mysore paks rather than soft ones.
