Chef, the ingredients are right but the procedure is not the traditional way and the procedure u follow chef is very different and difficult.
PROCEDURE:
1) First of all the gram flour has to be roasted slightly in a pan without adding ghee or oil without turning to brown andvroasted flavour of besan comes
2)Then prepare sugar syrup in separate pan till the sugar syrup becomes one string consistency
3) then add flour slowly with continous stirring so as to not form lumps
4) after flour is added then add ghee slowly to the above sugarsyrup and besan mixture with continuous stirring.i.e
2cups ghee if sugar is 1 cup till the flavour comes keep on stirring until the ghee is completely absorbed by flour
and sugar and no longer the mysore pak sticks to pan and when it starts not sticking to pan switch off stove
5) immeditely transfer the contents to a greased ghee plate.
6) otherwise the mysore pak becomes hard if u leave on stove .
Note: if u add ghee double quantity the mysore pak will be very soft it willbe very tasty then the crisped mysore pak
(usually ghee is added double quantity to sugar i guess) .
THANKS
