Mysore Pak is a traditional sweet that is very easy to make. This sweetmeat requires very few ingredients although it owes its origins to the royal palace of the erstwhile Mysore state. A chef working for Krishnaraja Wadiyar IV, the king of Mysore, made a simple concoction of ghee, gram flour, and sugar and solidified it. The king loved this simple sweet so much that Mysore Pak soon became his favourite dessert and it came to known as the ‘royal sweet’.
The simple and humble Mysore Pak made with ghee, sugar, and gram flour will win your heart again and again with its simplicity and deliciousness.
