Mysore pak (SNC EVENT)


Hi  friends! Our friend Divya Pramil  from You too can cook Indian food.  posted interesting  contest. Its South vs North challenge and  a way to learn new things.  


According to the challenge teams were divided into North and South group and  I belong  to North group being from Mumbai, Maharashtra.



The first challenge came from  Divya's southern team  http://divyasculinaryjourney.blogspot.in/2012/10/mysore-pak.html  and its  Mysore pak.

For me looking at ingredients I thought should be easy but method got me stumped. I had to make sugar syrup and this is one thing I can never get it right. Maybe  a mental block about this but  I could never  try anything which had sugar syrup in  the method. Encouraged by Divya pramil and Shruti wahi and her tips on how to get it done along with step by step instructions I managed to make mysore paak first time in my life. Needless to say it came out perfectly and just like the way  I love it.
So here is my recipe and for step by step instructions you can see divya's post.

Ingredients:
1 cup gram flour 

1 cup sugar

1/2 cup water

3/4 cup ghee

1/4 cup oil



Method:
Grease a plate before only and keep it aside. Mix oil and gramflour. In a deep  vessel, mix sugar and water and make  1 string consistency sugar syrup. This was the hardest part for me but seeing the pics and explained by shruti I knew when it was right. Next  add the besan mixture to syrup stirring continously.  Add ghee little by little and keep stirring. For me  somehow  2tbsp ghee seemed enough. Keep stirring till mixture changes color and texture and leaves sides. Pour in greased plate immediately and  tab the plate to straighten it. The mixture hardens  immediately. While its still warm make desired shape cut and keep it aside. Remove from plate and store Mysore pak in  airtight container.

Hope you all like it and hope the two Divyas Shruti and others and everyone like my very very very first attempt at this and thanks for this wonderful challenge  I finally made something new which I love so much and it came out perfectly just the way I love it. I am sure going to make this again as only few pieces are left now. So what do you all think, waiting for your lovely comments.

  21. I love mysore pak..will try soon..

  22. it is one of my favorite dishes, though I try to avoid it because it is very fattening with all that ghee. My bhabhi used to make it & some of my friends also make it at the time of Diwali. Have you tried Kaju mysore pak ? I love that too :)
    by the way, we use different method to make Mysore pak. pouring hot ghee a little at a time from a height & sprinkle cold water over the mixture; so that the mixture froths up & a net forms over it after it settles.

    1. thanks vimi even i love it. what u say cud be right this only got confusing for me becoz of syrup but i think this was the easiest for me to do. this one did have that net type thing and texture was so perfect. i dont know why 2 tbsp ghee seemed enough for me
      so it wasnt fattening but ya oil was there.

  24. Meena, the pictures look great just the way I have seen in my in-laws place. And the receipt looks easy enough but I too have a mental block regarding sugar syrup. Can you send me details for that so I can try. Bala loves itsnd I would like to try it for the coming festival season. Great job.

  27. Hi meena we are on the same boat, i also never tried anything with sugar syrup which ask for thread consistency, by seeing your Mysore pak, i have gathered some courage to do that, may will try it some day.
