Kadalai Maavu Cake | Jiffy Mysore pak

Posted on May 6th, 2009

Kadalai Maavu (Bengal gram flour) cake is a sweet prepared at my Aaji’s (granny) place for Deepavali :) This sweet reminds us of the mysore pak. Hence I have named it as “jiffy mysore pak” :D

    Back here after a long time :D . Hey this is a lip smacking sweet!!! Surely going to try. I guess we can reduce sugar as per our taste. Am sure this would have been similar to the famous Mysore pa of krishna sweets :) with generous ghee and sugar ;-) Drooling!!!
