Top 10 Places To Enjoy Mysore Pak In Mysuru, By City Foodies

Mysuru, or Mysore, is a city in the southwestern part of Karnataka that is also known as "the city of palaces". Located in the foothills of the Chamundi Hills, this city is popular for its rich history, royal heritage, and intricate architecture. Mysore is filled with tourists throughout the year, and its vastness can also be seen in its cuisine. It is an incredible place to enjoy many mouthwatering dishes, and Mysore pak is one of those delights.

Being very popular in the Southern states, Mysore pak is made with generous amounts of ghee, sugar, and gram flour, along with the flavours of cardamom, rose, and honey. It is traditionally served on many occasions, like festivals, weddings, and baby showers. This sweet treat has earned a special place in the hearts and palates of not just the locals but also people from all over the country.

Along with its delectable taste, this dessert also has a rich history. The origin of Mysore pak can be traced back to the royal kitchen of the Mysore palace. This sweet was first created for Maharaja Krishnaraja Wodeyar by the palace's royal cook, Kakasura Madappa. He experimented with a combination of besan, ghee, and sugar, leading to the creation of the sweet delight that came to be known as "Mysore pak" in honour of its place of origin.

So, if you are planning a trip to Mysuru, here are the top ten places to enjoy Mysore pak in the city, as recommended by city foodies:
