Let’s Trace The History Of The World Famous Mysore Pak!

The Royal Sweet

Who can refuse a  bite of the heavenly Mysore Pak?   The golden brown sweet which is heavenly and lifts your mood instantly as it melts away like butter in your mouth was but a result of a royal experiment.

Tracing its history

Kakasura Madappa, the palace cook of Krishna Raja Wadiyar IV conducted this experiment. When the King’s platter had a void for a sweet course he hitched upon the idea of inventing a new sweet out of gram flour ( besan ), Ghee and sugar syrup.  The king was so pleased with the dish that he asked Madappa to open a shop selling this sweet so that his subjects could also relish it. Run by his great-grandson, Nataraj, this shop called Guru Sweet Mart still sells this world-famous sweet.

Along with Mysore Sandal oil, soap, jasmine, Mysore silk, betel leaf and rosewood inlay, Mysore Pak is also something that Mysore is known for.
