Carrot Mysorepak

Carrot Mysorepak is a delicious melt in the mouth South Indian sweet variety made during Diwali festival. It is made with besan flour (Bengal gram flour),carrot puree, sugar and ghee. It is very similar to making regular Mysore Pak but here
we add carrot puree to induce carrot flavour.It tastes absolutely delicious.I found this recipe in Kovai KCS Youtube channel and modified it accordingly.  They have added food colour but I have avoided it. Moreover they mixed the besan with ghee I used oil here. This is done to give perfect melt in mouth texture to the carrot MysorePak.Here I have added 1/2 cup ghee and 1/4 cup oil.Add ghee and sugar according to your taste preference. Instead of 1 cup ghee I have added only 1/2 cup,but don't add less than that you won't get that perfect texture. Check out how to make yummy carrot Mysorepak recipe below.


Besan (Bengal Gram flour/Kadalai Maavu)-1/2 cup
Carrot puree-1/2 cup
