*********Deepavali Festival Special ********* "Mohanthal" - A Gujrati/Rajasthani dessert

Wish you all a Happy and Prosperous Diwali....

Finally managed to make "Mohanthal" which turned out to be easier than I thought...
My first attempt at making this at home...
Have had this dessert several times in some Rajasthani restaurants, and managed to even get the recipe, but always thought it was tuff to make so postponed it...

A yummy Gujrati/Rajasthani could even called it "Gram Flour Fudge"

Try making it...its easy and yummy too...
