Mysore pak sweet is a specialty of South Indian homes. Mysore pak for us in our family has to be bit rocky and less in sweet, light yellowish outside and brown color inside with porous holes in it makes it perfect.
Nowadays it has become a rarity to see mysore pak being served on any occasions. Every one have shifted their interests to North Indian sweets. No Diwali or function is complete without traditional mysore pak and boondi laddu during my childhood days. My mom makes the best mysore pak and i use to finish the entire batch in less than an hour.
