Best Mohanthal Recipe | How to make Mohanthal?

What is Mohanthal?

Absolutely delicious fudge made using gram flour (besan), ghee and sugar syrup which just melts in the mouth and keeps you craving for more and more is Mohanthal. The interesting part about Mohanthal is that it has a rough texture, it is not smooth as a barfi but you bite it and it dissolves, it disappears leaving its amazing oomph. I have yet to have just one piece of it, as in I always end up eating more. That’s its magic.  Howsoever I might like it, I would never make it. But during my recent visit to my Mom’s place I learned this delicacy from her. Not all of my recipes have the prefix perfect or best. Few have them, the ones which actually are, as this one… as it comes straight from my Mum’s kitchen.

However, I assure you one thing; it won’t be the easiest dessert recipe but will be the tastiest one.

Let’s talk about the ingredients for Mohanthal Recipe

Well, I have to say this. Gram flour, ghee, and sugar combine to give us so many sweets; such as this… already on the blog is perfect besan ladoo… coming up shortly is Mysore Pak. Let’s have a look at the ingredients:

Gram Flour (besan): Regular gram flour has been used. It is given a given texture by sprinkling milk and ghee mixture on it.

Ghee: Yes, and a lot of it.

Sugar Syrup: This is the thing because of which I never tried this recipe because I am never sure about those strings :D. But Mom explained it properly and next time I’ll also check it on my sugar thermometer and update. However, in the recipe, we have prepared sugar syrup of 1 and ½ thread consistency.

Roasted Mawa: I have seen plenty of recipes on the internet. They differ from this one in a number of ways; this ingredient is the most important one. The recipe calls for little roasted mawa and do not skip it, you will love its bite.

Hi! I am CA Vini Mehta. A Chartered Accountant by profession, a food blogger by passion! First of all, I would like to thank you for stopping by at Viniscookbook, I hope you have a good time. Here, yo...u will find the recipes which have been tried, at times re-tried in my kitchen and relished on the dining table. I am mother of two kids and the wife of a person with a high and selective taste sense, so basically anything, before finding its place on the blog, has many levels to cross and clear. This journey started a couple of years back. Before that I was making the most usual kind of food. The only experiment used to be asking my mother how to make something new or different☺. Then, one day, I tried a recipe for butter cookies. And they did not get to go in the container as they were over before I could store them. That day I was introduced to the joy of experimenting with recipes. And I loved everything else that followed especially garnishing and photographing food. I am still not well versed with the photography dos and don’ts but I love to experiment and learn, be it photography or cooking. Hope you too enjoy this journey as much as I do☺! Stay healthy, stay tuned!.
