Microwave Mysore Pak
Today is my younger one's 3rd birthday.So I made this mysorepak in a microwave.The whole process takes 8 minutes!!Easy isn't it??
When you crave for mysore pak and you dont feel like going through the whole laborius process of standing in front of the stove with a ladle,you can try this.
Besan/chickpea flour - 1 cup
Melted ghee - 3/4 cup
Sugar - 2 cups
Water - 1 1/2 cup
Grease a plate with ghee.
Mix melted ghee and besan without any lumps.
In a microwave safe bowl(large enough so that the mixture does not overflow during the process),heat the sugar and water and microwave on high for 2 minutes.
Stir and then microwave on high for 2 minutes.
Now add the ghee-besan mixture,mix thoroughly and then microwave for 4 minutes.
Stir for every minute,as it tends to overflow.
At the end of 4 minutes,when you look at the vessel,pores would be formed all over.That is exactly the required consistency.
You will get the timing right after you give 1 or 2 tries.It depends on the microwave too.
Even I felt i should've reduced 40 second during my last minute .I got a little bit hard texture.
Transfer into the plate and after 2 minutes cut into desired shape.
