Makes: 16 nos
Please use same measuring cup to measure besan (gram flour), ghee and sugar. Here I used Indian standard measuring up of 100 ml / 4 oz capacity. My Microwave oven is Whirlpool Magi Cook (22GSi) 750 W and microwave safe bowl is 1 ½ litre capacity.
1 cup besan (gram flour/ kadala maav / chone pitti), sieve twice
1 tablespoon ghee (to fry besan)
2 cups sugar (measure sugar and then make a fine powder)
1 cup ghee (100 ml)
2 tablespoon boiled milk (@normal temperature)
1 teaspoon ghee (to grease steel thali / baking dish)
Heat ghee in a pan on medium heat. Add sieved besan and gently fry on a low heat for 4 – 6 minutes until the raw smell goes. Stir continuously.
Melt ghee in a microwave safe bowl of 1 ½ litre capacity for 1 minute on high heat (750 W).
Grease a steel thali / baking dish /microwave safe bowl with 1 teaspoon ghee. Keep it ready.
Now mix melted ghee with fried besan, powdered sugar and milk. Stir it well with a thick tablespoon. It should be a smooth paste ( without any lumps) and microwave on high heat / power (750 W) for 2 minutes. Mixture will boil vigorously and with lots of bubbles. That's the right consistency. Switch off the heat / power. Immediately transfer Mysore pak mixture into a greased dish. Spread it evenly with a flat spatula. Keep aside to cool for 10 – 12 minutes and then cut it into desired shape and size.
