I love making homemade mysore pak. It only requires a few simple ingredients, and the resulting treat is absolutely delicious!

Mysore pak is an Indian sweet from Karnataka that is cooked in ghee. It is basically a sweet Indian fudge. It is traditionally served at weddings and other southern Indian festivals.

  • 1 cup besan, gram flour
  • 1 cup ghee, clarified butter
  • 2 cups caster sugar
  • 1 cup water


  1. Grease a tray, and keep aside. In a pan, add 2 cups of sugar and 1 cup water to make the sugar syrup.
  2. When sugar is dissolved, let it boil until you get one-thread consistency. (See notes below on how to form a one-thread consistency.)
  3. While your sugar syrup is getting ready, take a non-stick pan and heat the cup of ghee.
  4. Once the ghee is warm, add 1 cup besan. Fry the mixture in the pan. It should be watery, and there should be no lumps.
  5. When the besan starts to boil like milk and raise, add the sugar syrup and cook until it thickens up.
  6. Pour the mixture on to the greased tray, and let it cool for 5 minutes.
  7. After 5 minutes, cut the mysore pak into the desired shape, and let it cool completely. Serve once cooled.

How to Get the One-Thread Consistency

  1. Dip a wooden spoon into the syrup and lift it out, allowing it to cool for a few seconds. (Note: It is extremely important to let the syrup cool before touching it, as otherwise, you risk severe burns.)
  2. Touch your index finger to the syrup, and then to your thumb.
  3. Pull your thumb and index finger apart
  4. When you pull the syrup between your thumb and index finger, one thread should be formed.
  5. If it doesn't, keep cooking until it forms one thread.
