Mysore pak

Mysore pak is a traditional sweet dish from South India normally made during occasions or festivals. This sweet is made in combination with besan/ Bengal gram flour, ghee/ clarified butter and sugar. I have made this on a special occasion as today is Rakhi…a memorable, lovable day which represent a brother–sister love for each other. I wish all my friends, colleagues, near & dear ones a very “HAPPY RAKSHA BANDHAN”
