7 Cup Cake

This is a traditional sweet make with a total of seven cups. So thats how the name came into existance. This is a sweet which tastes almost like a mysore pak. But with a little taste of Milk and Coconut. Easy to make and quick too for a sudden feast or a snack.

Beasan powder - 1 Cup
Coconut powder - 1 Cup
Ghee - 1 Cup
Milk - 1 cup
Sugar - 3 Cups

- Grind the sugar and make a fine powder.
- In a kadai add the besan powder, coconut powder, ghee, milk and sugar powder and mix well.
- Make sure that there are no lumps.
- Now transfer this to the gas stove. And leave it for 3 - 4 minutes until it gets heated.
- Now start stirring and make sure that the entire mixture has to be stirred until the last step.
- stir well until the ghee seperates from the mixture.
- There should not be any bubbles in the mixture, but it could be on the sides of the mixture.- This is the right consistancy.
- Transfer that to the plate and leave it to cool under the fan for 5 mins.
- Now cut it into diamonds while its still hot.
- Can store this in an air tight container.
- This stays outside for a month.

Thanks goes to :
I had a friend by name Gaiyathri. She was my CA friend in 2001. Her mom is an expert with these sweets. This was served to me when I had been to her home once. And Aunty even taught me how to make this. My first experiment came out awesome. From that time.... I prepare this sweet atleast once in 2 - 3 months.. !!!

This is for the EVENT: TASTE OF MYSORE
