Microwave mysorepak recipe – Easy sweet recipes – Diwali sweets

         The mysorepak is a classic Indian dessert the preperation of which is believed to be the most difficult. I mean it takes guts and have to be made under the guidance of a expert. I have tried the traditional way of making this sweet and have posted it here. It was kind of okay when I made this for the first time, but was slightly crumbly. Then came the soft mysorepak-Krishna sweets kind of recipe which became a rage and was tried by several bloggers. I tried it too and it came out wonderfully. I made it many times and won appreciations by many. The process is comparitively easier. Then now this sweet is made in a matter of minutes in the microwave. When I shared it with some friends, some accepted, a few critisised and said the mysorepak is best when its made in the traditional way and is not worth making in a microwave. But if you are like me and enjoy less time consuming recipes and are not too worried about traditions, then do try this one. I have already made it a couple of times and my family has always appreciated it. When I tasted the sweet the same day I made, I could feel a raw taste of the flour. But it was completely okay after a few hours especially the next day. I really enjoyed making this one and surely going to make for diwali again. I hope you try it too!!
