Mysore pak is a sweet dish from South India, usually served as dessert. It originated in Karnataka[citation needed]. It is made of generous amounts of ghee, sugar and gram flour.


Mysore pak was first created in the kitchens of the Mysore Palace by a palace cook named Kakasura Madappa out of the above ingredients. The cook at the Mysore Palace kitchen simply made a concoction of besan, ghee and sugar. When asked its name, Madappa obviously didn't have its name, so he simply called it the ‘Mysore pak’.[1]
