I got a request for carrot Mysore pak recipe. I wanted to try it as well as it was exciting and tempting even to say carrot mysore pak. Prepared for this Diwali post in my blog. At first, I was in dilemma if to make it as burfi or mysore pak. So when I made it for first time, made carrot mysore pak but added nuts for garnish and cut into squares. I have no idea why I did that 🤦‍♀️🤷‍♀️.

Again made it in pure mysore pak style just to make sure to post it here right. Inspiration from this video.

Important notes for perfect mysore pak:

  • Keep greased tray ready before starting. Keep all ingredients ready as well.
  • Do not do multi tasking. Do entire process patiently.
  • Double ensure the syrup reached one string consistency. Don’t get tricked by half string consistency where the string breaks short. Long string should be formed.
  • Don’t be impatient while cutting and taking out. Give required resting time.

Notes

Make sure to grind the carrots smoothly. Also if possible grind without water or very very less water as it will take more time to form string consistency.
Never compromise in ghee or sugar, otherwise the texture will sure vary. Also raw besan smell will be there if you reduce ghee/ sugar.
Keep the heat in medium or low through out the process.
If your syrup doesnt reach one string consistency, then your mysore pak wont set. It will be halwa and turns to candy no matter how long you cook. So make sure to reach one string consistency.

Stays good for a week at room temperature. You can also add some orange food colour for a more colour ful result, make sure to use natural food colouring. I have used aluminium foil at the bottom, you can use butter paper or just grease the bottom of tray without any lining.
