Kadalai Maav/Besan/Chickpea Flour - 1 cup
Sugar - 2 and 1/2 cups
Ghee - 2 and 1/2 cups (Melted and warm)
Water just to cover sugar

Preparation Method
Heat a kadai and dry fry kadalai maav till you get good aroma and raw smell is gone. Do not burn it. 
In a double boiler, melt ghee and keep in low flame to keep ghee hot and warm.
Grease a tray or plate with ghee.
In a heavy bottom kadai, add sugar and water. Let it dissolve and keep stirring till it forms 1 string. Slowly keep checking by your fingers. Reduce flame to low.
Add the kadalai maav slowly and stir by whisk and without forming lumps.
Now increase the flame, it will start to become frothy and bubbling.
(you cannot move your eyes and hand anywhere, keep stirring slowly)
When it becomes thick, add 1/2 cup melted ghee and keep mixing.
Keep stirring well then after few minutes again add 1/2 cup ghee and mix well.
When it becomes thick, frothy and doesnot stick to kadai, add last 1/2 cup ghee. Stir once. Pour in the greased tray. Press lightly by a cup evenly.
Allow it to cool for sometime, then take a greased sharp knife and cut to desired shape.
Let it cool completely, again take knife and cut on the same prints firmly.
Slowly remove the peices and store in airtight container.

Mysore Pak melt in mouth is ready.
