Mysore Pak

- recipe by Raji Ramakrishnan submitted on 10-02-2012


  • 1 cup Gram flour (besan)
  • 1 - 1 1/4 cup Ghee (Clarified Butter)
  • 3 cups Sugar
  • Cardamom powder


  1. In a kadai, melt the sugar. 
  2. Sieve the besan. Mix the ghee and cardamom powder with it and keep aside. 
  3. When the sugar  melts completely, add the besan mix (see that no lumps formed) and keep on stirring till the same starts leaving the kadai. 
  4. Transfer the same to a greased plate and pat it to equalize the same in the plate. 
  5. Dip a knife in ghee and cut to desired shapes. 


  • You have to be very careful at the finishing point of making this item.  If not removed at the proper time, the same will become powdery.
  • Experience makes the man perfect. While preparing this item, first you try with small quantities. I have spoiled many number of times and finally succeeded.
