» Preparation For Mysore Pak:

  1. Add besan to a broad non-stick pan and dry roast besan over medium-low heat for 5 minutes or until raw smell goes off.
  2. Sieve the roasted besan.
  3. Add ghee to it. You can do this process once or twice to make sure that there are no lumps in besan.
  4. Mix well using a wired whisk until you get a lump-free, smooth and runny texture.

» How To Make Sugar Syrup:

  1. Add water and sugar to a thick bottomed pan over medium heat.
  2. Stir well until the sugar dissolves completely.
  3. Once the sugar syrup starts boiling and you see the bubbles, you can check the consistency. To check consistency, dip a spoon in the boiling syrup and let it cool for few seconds. Now gently touch the sugar syrup with a forefinger. Now touch your thumb and forefinger together and pull apart slowly and gently. One-thread consistency is ready when a single thread is formed (thread should not break) between your forefinger and your thumb when moved apart.
