Mysore Pak is a sweet originally from the state of Karnataka. Made with oodles of Ghee, is a simple but a recipe with which you can impress your friends and folks! You must have tried my desi sweet recipes like Peanut ladoo , Suji Halwa and Magas.
This simple sweet dish is fudge to which I gave a twist by adding desiccated coconut for giving it an extravagant twist to this rather plain sweet. This 4 ingredient recipe doesn’t require expert level cooking skill but thorough understanding of the process to perfect the texture.
A perfectly made Mysore Pak is aromatic, slightly crunchy, melts in mouth, porous texture and doesn’t release ghee on eating.
Follow the steps to perfect your Mysore Pak with a little coconut twist by following the steps below:
Coconut Mysore Pak Recipe and Text Recipe Below
- 1 Cup Fresh Cream
- 1 Cup Desiccated Coconut
- 1/2 Cup Sugar
- 1/4 Tsp Cardamom Powder
- Add fresh cream in a pan, desiccated coconut, sugar, and finally cardamom powder.
- Now mix all ingredients until they blend well.
- At this stage, place the pan on flame.
- For a minute or two cook it on full flame.
- The important thing to be taken note of is that it has to be cooked continuously in one direction (either clockwise or anti-clockwise, however, you are comfortable with)
- Once the mixture is hot and entirely melted, lower the flame.
- Cooking it stirring continuously is the key to get that melt in the mouth texture. Scrap the mixture if it sticks to the sides of the pan.
- If you are fond of the lighter shade of Mysore Pak, at this stage you can turn off the flame.
- But if you would like the same color as the original Mysore Pak, then continue to cook for a minute or two.
- Take it out in a bowl or a plate, according to the thickness of the piece you want. Leave it aside to set for 15-20 minutes.
- Now cut it into square Mithai shape pieces.
Once it completely cools off, serve the pieces as you like. The texture is to die for and you get this amazing sweet dish with just 4 ingredients, it is simply amazing. Do try this recipe and let me know your experience.
