  7. After you have reached the one string consistency with the sugar syrup, slowly add the roasted besan flour and whisk it into the sugar syrup.
  8. After all the besan flour has been completely incorporated into the sugar syrup, start adding the ghee a ladle at a time.
  9. Keep mixing the mysore pak while adding a ladle full of ghee until you have used adding all of the ghee mixture into the mysore pak.
  10. Finally the mysore pak will start becoming frothy on the edges and toward the center of the pan too.
  11. When it is nice and frothy, you should pour the mixture into the greased tray.
