Gujarati mohanthal is a sweetened gram flour fudge flavoured with saffron and nuts.
This is a tricky recipe to master – and as this was my first try I slightly undercooked the gram flour mix but slight tasted good!
This was something that I never thought I’d make let alone to eat it. However the older I get the more creative I’m getting.
2 Tbsp milk
Pinch of saffron
1/2 Tsp cardamom
1/2 Cup of Ghee
1 1/2 Cup of Besam Flour ( Gram flour)
1/2 Can of Condensed Milk
1/2 Cup of chopped pistachios and almonds
In a small cup add warm milk, cardamom and saffron
Heat the ghee in a pan
Add the gram flour
Stir until it goes brown ( I didn’t cook as long as I should have – I still liked the taste of it!). If you keep stirring it will become dough like and as soon as you stop it will become a liquid.
Add condensed milk and cardamom saffron milk
Stir until the mixture forms a soft dough and comes away from the pan
Put the mixture into a lined greased dish and press down
Add chopped nuts over the top
Spread the nuts and press into the mohanthal and allow to cool
Cut in the small pieces and enjoy
