The first time I tried, everything came out perfect except that I found a slightest raw smell of besan(only I cud feel it snd was not sure where I went wrong) so when I tried it the next time for posting I followed an extra step of roasting and then sieving it...voila!! it was apt both texture and tastewise. Sure this is going to be my keeper.

  5. At one stage, it will come as a ball without sticking at all. The mixture will not be sticky anymore. At this stage switch off and pour it in the ghee greased plate. Dont need to flatten it, it will spread beautifully by itself. Cut it into squares/diamonds as per your wish while its hot and enjoy your mysore pak.I poured it in a big plate so my slices were thin as I wanted them that way. You can select the plate accordingly. Be very careful in checking the final consistency else your mysore pak will not be soft.
