Mohanthal Using Condensed Milk

Mohanthal is a popular, milk based Gujarati sweet; it resembles the South Indian Mysore Pak by its look and ingredients!

Mohanthal involves a time consuming process and mostly prepared using khoya; but here I have tried an instant method using condensed milk (from Tarladalal's cook book which is contributed by a member).  I  have made slight changes in the quantity of ingredients.

Do try this and post your feedback.


Besan flour / Kadalaimavu / Gram flour - 1 ½ cup
Sweetened condensed milk - ¾ to 1 can ( 395 g)
Milk - 3 tbsp
Saffron - few strands
Cardamom powder - 1 tsp (optional)
Ghee - ½ cup
Chopped pistachios / almonds - For garnishing


Mix milk and besan flour to give a crumb texture and keep aside.

Heat ghee in a pan, add besan flour and fry till it turns brown in colour (do this in a medium flame; take care not to burn the flour) and the raw smell goes.

Now add condensed milk, cardamom powder and saffron strands.  Continue stirring until it turns thick and fluffy; remove from the flame.

Pour the mixture into a greased plate and garnish with chopped almonds / pistachios.

Level it with spoon and cut into desired shapes. 

Let it cool down completely before transferring to a container.
