Here is mohanthal heirloom recipe of my family , recipe credit mother in law
Besan 225 gms (not rough one) I used regular one
Sugar 125 gms
Ghee :150 gms
2 tbsp cardamom powder
Dry fruit of choice
Heat Kadai , add ghee once ghee melts , keep gas on very low flame,add besan gradually and stir it uoto 18 mins , I have done up to 15 mins but seems need 3/4 min more as per mother in law told, meanwhile keep stirring it shouldn’t stick bottom and sometime in another utensil add sugar and water up to sugar level and keep for boiling ,once sugar is melted switch off it , now besan will leave aroma and when it’s done ghee is little separated , at same time add sugar syrup & cardamom powder , I have added 5 tbsp milk at same time to make it richer , you can skip it .once you add sugar syrup it will leave sides and kind of halwa will be formed , now grease plate with ghee and add to plate n let it cool down , mummy don’t prefer much dry fruits so I kept simple as her choice ,also sprinkle elaichi powder on top and refrigerate for an hour now cut into pieces and relish it . Happy dhanteras & happy Diwali to one n all .
