Show me for servings


1/3 cup (50 grams) powdered cashewnuts (kaju)
1/3 cup (50 grams) plain flour (maida)
1/2 cup melted ghee , warm
1/2 tsp cardamom (elaichi) powder
3/4 cup (150 grams) sugar

For Pouring Into The Flour Mixture
3 1/2 cups melted ghee , hot

  1. In a bowl, combine the cashewnuts, flour, ghee and cardamom powder and mix well. Keep aside.
  2. In another pan, combine the sugar with 1/3 cup of water and bring to a boil. Simmer till the syrup is of 1 string consistency.
  3. Add the cashewnuts and flour mixture and mix well, over a slow flame, stiring in one direction.
  4. Pour the hot ghee , a little at a time from a height so that it trickles in a thin stream into the cashewnut mixture. Keep stirring with a ladle in a clockwise direction, adding larger quantities of the ghee towards the end.
  5. When the mysore pak expands and some ghee separates, sprinkle 1/2 teaspoon of cold water on the pak. If it is ready, the mysore pak will sizzle indicating that it is ready to be poured out.
  6. Pour the mixture into a tray or a thali approximately 100 mm. (4") in diameter. The sides of the thali should be at least 50 mm. (2") high.
  7. Cut into pieces when hot and allow it to set a little. Then, crack a small hole on one side and drain out all the excess ghee. Approximately 2 to 2 1/2 cups will get drained out.
  8. Store in an air-tight container.
