This is the most addictive kind of sweet for me. I just cant stop with one piece. My mom is a mysore pak and 7 cups sweet expert. I used to ask her to make these for me all the time. Even my childhood friends remembers my mom by her 7 cups sweet..:)
Gram flour( Besan) 1 cup
Melted Unsalted butter or Ghee 1 cup
Shredded Coconut 1 cup
Milk 1 cup
Sugar 3 cups
1. Take a wide pan and roast gram flour on a low flame for a few minutes.
2. Add all the remaining ingredients to the pan and mix well on a medium flame. Stir continously until the mixture becomes thick. When the mixture starts to leave the sides of the pan, reduce the flame and continue stirring for a few more minutes. Be careful not to burn the mixture.
3. Apply ghee on a plate and transfer the mixture to the plate. Let it rest for 3 to 4 minutes, then cut it into squares or diamonds by using a knife. When they are completly cooled down, store in a air tight container.
