  • 1 cup - gram flour
  • 2.5 cups - Sugar
  • 10 to 12 - Almonds
  • 4 tbsp - Ghee
  • How to Make Almond Mysore-pak:

    1. Soak the almonds in boiling water for a couple of hours.
    2. Then peel and grind them into a fine, thick paste, adding very little water.
    3. In a dry pan, fry the gram flour until it is slightly brown in colour.
    4. Heat up a heavy bottomed pan and add the ground almond paste and sugar and stir until the sugar dissolves completely.
    5. When it thickens, add the gram flour and stir continuously.
    6. Simultaneously, heat up the ghee and pour over the gram flour-sugar-almond mixture and mix uniformly.
    7. Reduce the fire to low and keep stirring until the sweet becomes porous. (When poured using a spoon or ladle, it should fall as a semi-solid and not flow uniformly).
    8. Immediately, remove from the heat and pour over a greased plate.
    9. Tap the plate gently a few times for the sweet to settle uniformly.
    10. While it is still warm, cut into diamond shaped pieces.
    11. If interested, sprinkle 1 tsp sugar all over the top, before cutting.
