Kadalai Maavu Cake | Jiffy Mysore pak

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” 😀

i am getting heart attack seeing the amount of ghee and sugar. lol
but its worth the taste…. looks great.

He he once in a while konjam extra va ghee and sugar 🙂 S… as u mentioned its worth the taste 😀

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!!!

Delicious Mysore pa! To me mysore pa preparation is a huge task :D. This seems to be very easy one. Will give a try!!
