Mysore pak

Mysore Pak is a popular South Indian sweet dish. India has a huge collection of sweets and desserts that one can never resist... and someone with a sweet tooth, like me, needs the least reason to eat or to make these sweets...Mysore pak, Jalebi, Laddu, Jhangri,different varieties of Halwa, Jamuns, Rasagolla,....will the list end any where....and will I ever stop drooling over them?!!...Enjoy!!

Preparation time: 5 mins
Cooking time: 30 - 45 mins

1 cup Besan (gram flour)
2 cup sugar
2 cup ghee (clarified butter)
1 cup milk

1. Mix all the above ingredient together in a heavy bottom pan.

2. Cook it with a medium - high flame stirring continously.
3. Cook until the ghee starts to leave the sides of the pan and the mixture starts to thicken till it becomes frothy and light gold in color.

4. Spread out on a greased plate and evenly level it out with a spatula.

5. When it is still hot, cut into square pieces. Makes about 10 to 12 pieces.
