Mysore Pak/Gram Flour Fudge

Mysore Pak, originating from the state of karnataka, is a delicious dessert which uses generous amounts of ghee.Simple sweet made from gram flour,sugar and ghee. Here is the way I make mysore pak.
History behind this sweet is that in the royal palace of mysore it was made initially by a cook and it delighted many royalties it seems and when asked for a name he spontaneously said mysore pak

Ingredients:
Gram flour-1.5 cup
Ghee-1 cup
Oil-1 cup
Sugar-2 cups
Water-1/2 cup

Recipe:
  1. In a deep bottom non stick pan add sugar and water and bring it to boil.
  2. Check for the sugar syrup consistency. It should for a soft ball stage. i.e when you take a drop of the syrup in between your thumb and index finger, you should be able to make a soft ball with that drop   
  3. Mix ghee and oil in another pan and let it become hot.
  4. Add gram flour spoon by spoon with continuous stirring to the sugar syrup prepared in step 2 so that no lumps are there in the mixture.
  5. Once done keep mixing  for some time say 4-5 mins and then add hot ghee and oil mixture prepared in step 3 spoon by spoon to the mixture and keep stirring
  6. As you add ghee you will see froth formation, the more the froth is the more soft the burfi will be.
  7. Cook till it becomes very frothy and ghee separates out.
  8. Spread onto a greased plate and also cut into pieces when warm. Once it cools you won't be able to make desired shaped pieces.
Enjoy the dish! n don't forget Eat and Eat little MORE.. :)
