BM #73 Week 2 Day 1
This week, I shall present some quick and easy sweet treats to please one and all.
I was talking to a friend about new ideas to make Indian sweets easier and quicker when she gave me a host of ideas, among which this 5 minute mysore pak topped my list.
It so happened that I had to make this treat for a friend and so another favorite added to our list at home!!
Recipe Source multiple recipes online
Besan / Gram Flour / Senagapindi 1/2 cup
Ghee 1/2 cup
Powdered Sugar 1 cup
Milk 2 tsp
Method Of Preparation -
In a MW safe glass bowl, mix besan and a teaspoon of ghee and microwave for a minute until the raw smell goes away.
Remove the roasted besan into a different bowl.
In the glass bowl, melt the ghee for a minute so the ghee is hot.
Add the remaining ingredients into the ghee, mix well so there are no lumps.
Put it back into the MW and zap for a minute. Remove and mix well. Continue for another 3-4 times in 1 minute increments. [I totally cooked the mixture for 5 minutes but I could have stopped at 3 1/2 minutes for a lighter colored mysore pak].
When the mixture turns frothy and it becomes flaky and pores are visible, transfer the mixture into a greased plate.
[At this point, I observed that there was an excess of ghee floating, so I drained the ghee into a separate container. It was approximately 2 tablespoons of ghee which I drained out.]
Allow it to cool for a couple of minutes and then with a sharp knife, make indents to slice as needed.
After another 10 minutes, slice it and serve or store in an air tight container.
Preparation Time 10 minutes
Makes 20 - 1 inch slices
