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.
