Soft Mysorepak

Mysore Pak is one of the yummy sweet that most of us like it. 


Celebrating this sweet with festival is a divine thought too. 

Let us celebrate this Deepavali 2018 with Soft MysorePak.
There is a story about this Mysorepak How it has got its name Mysore pak.
The story goes like this.  This Sweet Mysore pak was first time prepared during Shri Krishna Raja Wadiyar Rule in Mysore. 
Shree Krishna Raj Wadiyar was ruling Mysore that time. He was fond of sweets they say. He asked his palace cook Mr. Kakasura Madappa to prepare some thing nice, tasty and delicious. Madappa just prepared the mixture of sugar, ghee and gram flour/channa flour/besan flour. The sweet turned so nice as golden colour. King Krishna Raja Wadiyar ate this sweet,  which melted so easily and it was delicious. He was curious to know the name of this sweet. When he asked Madappa, he did not know what to say/ because he never thought of the name for this sweet. He suddenly uttered Mysore pak. It is done in Mysore first time and the pak means pakam /cooking. The name Mysore pak got its name in this way.
Let us see the recipe Now :
