Recipe by Vahchef.

Mysore Pak is a popular south Indian sweet prepared with bengal gram flour, sugar and ghee. Cooking of Mysore pak takes less time but needs more practice to know the exact consistency to get the exact texture and color.

If sugar is added more than your Mysore pak would become hard like a rock. If not experienced than it is always better to prepare mysore pak by taking help from somebody else.

Mysore pak prepared in home are really awesome if done in the right way. Besan flour is high in fibre and protein and a source of iron and folate but as Mysore pak is prepared using Ghee its high in fat and calories. Diabetic patients to refrain from eating Mysore pak as its a bit sweeter than other sweets.
