Mohanthal Recipe | Instant Mohanthal Recipe

Mohanthal is a traditional and common Gujarati Snack. Traditionally, this yummy sweet is prepared using khoya which is obviously time consuming. I have given here the condensed milk version which is very instant and within minutes, we could have tastier mohanthal ready in our house. If there are unplanned guests, this is one of the instant sweet we could always think of as we would be having all the required ingredients readily available in our homes.

your methods are crystal clear seem so simple. this mohanthal recipe is very inviting. thank u mam..

When to add sugar? u ddin mention that mam?

No need for sugar as we are using sweetened condensed milk.

I don't have condensed milk. May I use sugar?

I try many of your recipes and they usually come out very well. But Mohantal did not - it was not at all sweet.
Also when I added the Ghee to the gram flour in 1:3 ratio, it was not like the crumble powder shown in step 3, but more like step 4. Can you confirm if the measurements are correct or guess what I could have done wrong?

Hi, Have you used sweetened condensed milk? You get unsweetened condensed milk also in shops. I have used sweetened condensed milk so I have not added any sugar. Also the ratio is perfect. For 3 measures of gram flour, we need to add 1 measure of ghee. So obviously the ghee is 1 part of the gram flour, so the gram flour will become crumble and then after adding condensed milk only it will become as a whole mass of mixture. Have you first crumble the gram flour with little milk?

Thanks Sowmya for the response. I have used sweetened condensed milk. I did crumble it with milk too. I will try again in small quantity and let you know. This seems to be so easy - that I want to learn it and make it well.

Hi Sowmya,

Do I need to use Warm or Cold milk for step 2 ?
Recipe is awesome and simple. Thanks for that.

Boil the milk, cool it and then use it for this recipe.

great. thanks for your reply. I am definitely trying this recipe over the weekend.
thank you ever so much.

No cardamon added in this. Is that an option for mohanthal?

1/2 cup of ghee was not enough roast and 1/2 cup of condensed milk did not bind flour in the lump , Luckly I had some gulag Jumun chasni so I added 1/2 cup of chasni then it turn in to lumpy mass. I think measurements needs to change .
