Mysore Pak

Sugar - 1 cup
Besan powder - 1/6 cup
Baking soda - 1 pinch
water - 1 tbsp
Ghee - 2/6 cup

- Grind sugar into a fine powder.
- In a kadai add sugar, besan powder, baking powder, water and make it into a dough.
- Leave that to sit for 1/2 an hour.
- Add ghee to this dough and transfer the contents to the gas stove.
- Leave the kadai to heat for 2 mins.
- Keep stirring the mixture until it forms a thick consistancy.
- keep stirring until the mixture leaves the sides of the pan.
- The right consistancy is when the mixture leaves the sides of the pan. There are bubbles on the ghee on the sides of the mixture and not on the mixture.
- Now transfer that to a greased plate and leave it to cool.
- Now cut into squares and serve.
- Shelf period is close to a month's time.
