Mysore pak is a Indian traditional sweet, which mostly served in south Indian weddings and baby showers. I use to think making mysore pak at home is really a tough job,because my mom made mysore pak when we were kids, I still remember, they turned just like a rock, hahaha then my mom never made mysore pak again. But I was completely wrong, you can easily make mysore pak at home .now I understood why my mom's mysore pak didn't turned out well, the reason, I think sugar syrup got too thick. You need one string consistency. If you drop sugar syrup in cold water it should become a soft ball, not hard ball. Keep this tip in your mind while making mysore pak. I learnt this recipe from one of our neighbors and it just turned super yummy, hubby and kids loved it a lot.Will sure share the another version ghee mysore pak soon, so stay connected with my blog and Facebook page for more yummy and easy recipes.
I hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turned out for you.
