mysore pakmysore pak recipe | easy homemade mysore pak recipe with step by step photo and video recipe. an authentic recipe and perhaps a jewel in the crown of mysore is usually prepared during any festive occasion. this sweet dessert originated from mysore and hence the name. it is made from generous amount of ghee and sugar syrup which makes this recipe unique.

the history of mysore pak recipe is very interesting and it started in the royal kitchen of mysore palace. initially, the recipe was introduced by royal kitchen chef kakasura madappa when he was asked by the king to prepare a unique and different dessert. basically he prepared by fabrication of gram flour, sugar syrup and ghee and oil mixture. when presented to the this recipe to king, he liked it so much and he named it as mysore pak. pak or literally meaning ‘paka’ in kannada meaning to sweet syrup. even today mysore pak is prepared with the same technique and procedure in the royal kitchen of mysore.

even though the mysore pak recipe is prepared with just 4 ingredients, it has to be prepared with extreme care. firstly, sugar syrup consistency or one string consistency is very important for this recipe. otherwise, mysore pak would turn to mysore burfi recipe. secondly, do not hesitate to add hot ghee + oil mixture to the surface of besan mixture. you should see frothy layers when adding hot ghee and oil mixture. thirdly, use a tray full of mysore pak so that you get enough depth for red colour in the middle of mysore pak. lastly, it is that 30 seconds where besan mixture starts releasing the oil and does not absorb more oil. also the mixture turns completely frothy and pours. without any delay, transfer it to a deep tray and let it cook in it.

trust me i learnt all these steps hard way as i got it almost prefect in 4th attempt. however, i know its still not perfect as it needs more experience. finally, i request you to look into my other indian sweet recipes and indian dessert recipes. particularly, kaju katli recipe, kaju pista roll recipe, motichoor ladoo recipe, dry fruits ladoo recipe and rava ladoo recipe. also, do visit my other collection of recipes like

  1. Hi Archana, this is the first recipe i made with your help and it has turned out amazingly gorgeous. i am not a great cook, but i love to try out. i did not know what is a one thread sugar consistency until an hour ago and today i learnt it. Thanks to you. The mysore pak is ready, my family has to taste it to tell how it is, but just from looks i feel it would be awesome.
    Thanks again. Stay blessed.

  2. Hi,
    I like all your videos and your Mohanthal recipe came out excellent when I tried last week. All my friends loved it. The Mysore Pak came out perfect in your video. Instead if patting it with the ladel you should tap the dish itself. Again I can’t make it successfully, but have watched my Mother, Grand Mother, and Aunts make it while growing up. The consistency is the same but patting it makes the dough packed up tight and the layers are not visible.

  3. Amazing videos…the way u present really it’s very impressive…feel that cooking is just easy easy not at all difficult especially for the beginners…love it

  4. Hi,
    First of all, thanks for all the lovely recipes you got…. I tried the Mysore Pak…And it turned out so delicious and perfect….. It was really fun stirring all the time and Waiting to separate the oil….
    My husband’s favourite sweet…. Happy that I can make at home.
    Thanks again…

  5. I tried this today … just wonderful. Fabulous. The only thing is better to add some colour or saffron coz after cooking it looks like v dull coloured

    • you need to add hot oil-ghee mixture in uniform interval.. and also continuously mix on medium flame till the oil starts leaving from sides. else the besan will be raw as its undercooked..
