Mohanthal is a great treat to celebrate this Diwali. It is a popular Indian sweet dish, made from roasted gram flour (besan) and ghee. Mohanthal is just like a fudge with an authentic touch of cardamom and chopped dry fruits. It is also known as Gram Flour Fudge.
I remember, when I was a kid and my grandmom use to make mohanthal on every Diwali. I use to wonder that why the name of this sweet dish is Mohanthal , then she explained it to me, that Mohan means happiness and Thal means any big flat plate or Thali.
This sweet dish is in form of fudge and to be spread on a big Thali, so It is a happiness of fudge and a Welcome Dish of Diwali, hence the name is Mohanthal. Today I’m making this dish, missing my grandmom and dedicating this sweet dish to her. Lets start making Mohanthal / Gram Flour Fudge.
