Ghee Jaggery Mysore pak

Ghee Mysore Pak is one of the most famous sweets of Karnataka. It is one of the traditional sweets that is made in ghee. It originated in the state of Mysore, Karnataka. It is usually made with generous amounts of ghee, sugar, and Gram flour. Very famous for its melt in mouth texture and also known to be the pride of Karnataka. Here I will be sharing how to make Mysore Pak using jaggery instead of refined sugar. All traditional sweets were being made in jaggery before refined sugar was introduced in India which is much healthier and flavourful. Also, it retains iron content from the sugarcane and so very beneficial especially for kids. I like to come out of that refined sugar sweets concept in which we are trapped and accept nothing other than the one made with refined sugar. Definitely, this Mysore Pak doesn't taste like the normal one but still is super flavourful and addictive too!! This is best suited to make during festivals, for gatherings and parties.

Tambittu -North Karnataka style roasted gram laddoo

. North Karnataka special...Tambittu is one of the most popular laddoos /sweet balls made for Nagara Panchami. It is a festival of praying and offering milk to Nag devata (Snake God) who is worshipped in the form of stone, clay idol, or silver idol. In this recipe, Roasted gram (puthani) is powdered and then mixed with jaggery and other items to make laddoos. These are offered as Naivedyam to Nag devata and then eaten by all in the family. One of the most traditional sweets that have come down from generations...which is not only refined sugar-free...but so nutritious and healthy since Roasted gram provides with a good amount of fiber and protein. These are also gluten-free. This is my Mother's recipe which she makes every year for this Festival. Time to treasure all such age-old healthy recipes and pass it on to our future generations.
