Microwave Mysore Pahu thins


Welcome to the 21st day of baking mania.


Mysore pak or pahu or pagu, however it is spelled is one of the favorite sweet of kiddo. He can eat this as a meal itself. Last time during our India trip, he kept on munching the grand sweets mysore pak. I have already posted the traditional way of doing this recipe. As it was kiddos favorite I was looking for an easy recipe. When I found this microwave recipe I was elated and this became an every now and then dessert. I can just do it for kiddo alone and I make it as thins mainly because to portion control the sweet intake during nights. I don’t want to overdose with sweet in the evening or night. I took the base recipe from here and for both traditional and this one I used brown sugar / cane sugar.
