Mysure Pak / Easy Mysure Pak Recipe
Date – 4.9.2016
Mysure pak is very famous sweet that is made with 4 ingredients besan, ghee, sugar and water. This is my second attempt of making mysure pak. For my first attempt it came little hard but this time it came perfect. Few things that you should always remember for making mysure pak are, do not compromise with ghee’s quantity because if you reduce the ghee quantity your mysure pak will be like burfi that will be hard. If you want to reduce the ghee add oil but at in this case, you have to compromise with its taste. Second is while roasting besan roast it at low – medium flame until raw smell goes off and nutty fragrance starts coming and also it should be light pink in color. At the same time do not over roast it, Keep stirring it while roasting the besan so that it doesn’t burn. Follow step by step instructions carefully I am sure your mysure pak will come out perfect like how you eat in outside shop.
