Though I couldn't completely recreate that taste of Krishna sweets, my attempt was satisfying enough for me, as it was welcomed with so much of love by my little one and hubby...!!
So here is the recipe for you to try out when you are in a mood to satisfy your sweet tooth..!!
- Chick pea flour ( Besan ) - 1 cup
- Ghee - 1 1/4 cup
- Sugar - 2 cups
- Water - 1/4 cup
- Keep ready a steel plate / tin / tray, smeared with little ghee for transferring and setting the mysore pak.
- Take a bowl and mix the flour with ghee to a smooth paste using a spoon. Keep this aside.
- Heat a deep bottomed and wide pan. Add sugar and water to this and bring it to boil, stirring occasionally with a wooden spoon.
- Keep a cup of cold water to check '1 string consistency' of the sugar syrup. To do this, drop a little of the syrup into the cold water. It should easily form into a small ball, once it has reached the required consistency for making mysore Pak.
- Now slowly pour the flour and ghee mix to the sugar syrup and keep stirring.
- It takes about 15 - 20 mins of stirring for the Mysore Pak to reach the final consistency.
- It starts getting separated from the sides of the pan and Big bubbles start to form on the top. Now the mix is ready to be transferred to the already prepared tin.
- Pour the mix carefully as it is very HOT.
- It will set in 5-10 mins. Now you can cut into any desired shapes and serve.( Dont forget to cut into pieces at this stage, as it gets very hard making it harder to cut out later).
I am sure it wont take that longer though !! Enjoy !!
