Mohanthal is yet another sweet which is a must make during Diwali. My Sindhi friend Meenu makes excellent Mohanthal and frankly I always get a box from her every now and then. I have never really thought of making it myself.
Mohanthal is a fudge made from chick pea flour and there are different versions of this. The first time I made Mohanthal it was a Gujrati version, which had unsweetened khoya but The Sindhi version is different and is without khoya.. The method too is different. Both the versions are equally delicious.

I am also linking this post to the A-Z Challenge.

    How has the challenge been going for you so far? Are you meeting your goals of posting and hopping to other blogs? M= 1/2 way point!
    My blog's giveaway is still going! I'm encouraging everyone to visit more stops.
    Is is sweet like fudge or just a similar consistency? I'm not very familiar with cardamon, which is perhaps why I can't guess what this tastes like. I do like chickpeas though.

  2. We get only one variety of besan in south, unless things have changed now. The first time I noticed the coarser and fine varieties years ago, I could not understood what they were used for.
    They look super, Vaishali. Is this version Mohantal on a softer side?
