    Thumbs down Mysor Pak

    Ingredients

    1 cup besan flour
    2 cup sugar
    2 cup ghee
    2 - 3 pinches cardamom powder.

    Method:
    1. Dissolve the sugar in the water and heat it. (Take sugar and water in the ratio of 2 : 1 1/2 )
    2. Keep stirring till you get a thread consistency.
    3. You can check for this by feeling the syrup between your fore-finger and thumb. (If the syrup has reached the required consistency, then you will able to pull it out like a thread).
    4. Remove all the lumps in the besan flour and add it to the syrup, 1 table spoon at a time.
    5. Reduce the heat and add 2 teaspoons of ghee.
    6. Stir, till the flour and ghee has completely blended with the syrup.
    7. Repeat procedure till you finish all of the besan.
    8. Continue to stir and keep adding ghee 1tsp. at a time till the mixture changes color and texture. At one point, you will observe that the mixture is not able to absorb any more ghee. Also, the whole mixture becomes porous and starts leaving the edges of the vessel.
    9. At this point, transfer the mixture into a greased plate and with a spatula press the mixture down till the excess ghee surfaces. Do not remove the excess ghee.
    10. Allow it to cool for 10 minutes. Then, cut it into desired shape and wait for another 10 minutes. Carefully remove each piece and arrange on the serving tray.
    Note: If you follow the steps properly, you can make soft mysor paks, in no time which melts in mouth.

    Thumbs down To Make Sugar Syrup

    Following are the steps shown to make sugar syrup in the right way.

    Take sugar and water in the ratio of 2 : 1 1/2 unless other wise mentioned.

    Put both in a deep saucepan to boil, stirring occasionally.

    When the mixture comes to a boil, add 1/2 cup milk.

    When a thick scum is formed on the surface of syrup, it is time to strain.

    Always use a metal strainer or moist cloth to strain the hot syrup, never plastic.

    Put back to boil, checking the consistency required as above.

    Check frequently, because once the first thread forms, it proceeds tothicken to the next stages very quickly.
