One of the main ingredients in mysore pak is chickpea flour or besan flour. So, you see, this sweet is not only amazing but is also totally gluten free. The second main ingredient is ghee or clarified butter which really adds so much depth of flavor to this sweet. Best of all, this dessert gets that freaking awesome melt-in-your-mouth texture from ghee.
Next important element? Sugar syrup. You’ll need to boil sugar and water together until you get a one string consistency. Do not let the syrup turn into caramel.
To achieve the perfect texture, hot ghee is added to chickpea flour at two different stages. First, ghee is added to flour and then sieved before adding to sugar syrup. Second, plenty of ghee is added at the final stage of the cooking process.
So, before you start making this mysore pak, check out these tips to help you master the recipe:
- Always use super hot ghee
- After adding hot ghee to chickpea flour, sieve it so you’ll get lump-free flour
- While making sugar syrup, make sure the mixture doesn’t turn into caramel
