Mysore pak is a rich sweet dish prepared in Ghee, from Southern India, usually served as dessert. It originated in Mysore
Made from roasted gram flour and pure ghee
History of Mysore Pak: Long time ago, in the Mysore Palace (in Karnataka, India), a petty little cook, made a dessert for the King. He made paagh (basically sugar syrup in the local language), then added gram flour and to make it rich and worthy for the king added loads of clarified butter to it. It dripped of butter, and glowed, the gram flour gave it the look of Gold, the sugar gave the King a rush and the entire ensemble made the King super duper happy. The King asked for the name of the dessert and all the simple cook could say was Mysore Paagh( Basically Sweet of Mysore). He was asked to open shop outside the palace and sell the Mysore Paagh, to all. The King wanted all his men to taste this.
No one knows when the Paagh became paak, and since then Mysore paak, is enjoyed by one and all.
