as i mentioned earlier, the texture and colour are very similar to the soft or ghee mysore pak. this is due to the process involved in making this recipe which is similar to the ghee mysore pak recipe. yet if you closely observe, there is a minor difference between with its colour. the ghee mysore pak has more of golden brown colour and the horlicks counterpart is more of dull coloured. this is for the fact that horlicks is a wheat-based product and when wheat mixed with chickpea flour, it would yield a unique colour. moreover, there is a significant difference between the taste has to offer. the besan based sweets would just melt in your mouth. whereas the horlicks burfi would retain its shape and gradually melts. in addition, the besan based sweets are dense to eat compared to horlicks based ones.

furthermore, some important and critical tips, suggestions and variations to horlicks mysore pak recipe. firstly, i have followed a 3:1 ratio of besan and horlicks powder. this would ensure to have semi-solid kind of a sweet. yet you can increase the horlicks ratio to 3:2, but it means it would make the sweet more solid. secondly, once the sweet mixture is transferred to mould, ensure to tap it thoroughly so that there aren’t any air bubbles trapped. lastly, once the sweet loses it heat, the ghee would start to solidify. hence it is recommended to heat it or microwave it for 30 seconds to make it moist.
