Mysore Pak Recipe

Chickpea Flour Sweet Squares

In a large bowl, place:
2 cups chickpea flour
In a saucepan, melt and continue to heat until steaming:
2 cups ghee
In another saucepan, heat together into a syrup:
1 1/2 cups sugar
1/2 cup water
When the syrup is at the thread stage (226 degrees on a candy thermometer), add 1 cup of the ghee to the flour, (keeping the rest of the ghee on low heat), and stir the four mixture until there are no lumps. Add the flour and ghee mixture to the syrup, and stir constantly until the mixture pulls away from the sides of the pan when stirred and is very thick and lightly browned - about 5 minutes.
Remove form the heat. Add another cup of ghee, a little at a time, then let mixture rest. Sprinkle with a tablespoon of warm milk.
Pour into a colander to drain off the excess ghee, then transfer to a baking pan. Flatten with the back of a measuring cup; cut into 1" diamonds, then flip out (upside-down) onto paper towels to absorb any remaining ghee.
