|Chocolate Mysore Pak|
Besan/ Kadalai Mavu-1 cup
Water-3/4 to 1 cup
Chopped nuts -2tsp (optional)
(I used almonds & pistachio)
Grease a tray with little ghee & sprinkle chopped nuts evenly.
Heat one cup of ghee in a non stick pan,add the besan & fry it till raw smell disappears & changes its colour to light brown( make sure you don't burn).
Switch off the stove,add the cocoa powder mix & keep it aside.
In another pan add sugar & water give a boil till sugar has completely dissolved,switch off the gas.
Pour the sugar mixture into the fried besan cocoa mixture.Stir it well & now switch on the stove.
In medium flame keep stirring,at one stage you will feel that the mixture is getting thicker.
Now reduce the flame & pour the remaining ghee & oil in intervals & keep stirring.
The last stage is the mixture will start leaving the sides of the pan & the bubbles would have completely stopped (you will see very tiny pores in the mixture).
Put a small amount on the greased plate & see it forms to a small ball then that's the time to pour it on the tray.
Immediately pour it on a greased tray,while still warm cut into desired shapes.
a)Try to use a non stick pan because its less mess & easy to know the stage for removing the mixture.
b)This is a sweet which really requires patience & more focus.Otherwise your sweet will form into rocks or crumble down in a minute if you miss the stage.
c)This also requires some practice,so new comers please try with small quantity.
