Mysore Pak Sweet Dish Recipe by Veena Theagarajan.


Mysore Pak is a popular South Indian sweet dish. This is the only Indian sweet that my first son like it. Infact the sweet that whole family like it with the exception of me. So every time when the kids crave for sweet I do it. Past couple of years it is turning out pretty good ( I can call myself expert :-)). I wanted to post this for my 5000th Hits.. But my son keep asking for it.. They win at the end
