MOHANTHAAL (using Microwave)

Ingredients to make MOHANTHAAL (using Microwave)

  • 2 cups Gramflour/besan(approximately 300 gms).
  • 1 teaspoon Green cardamom (Elaichi)
  • 3/4 cup clarified butter(Ghee) +3 tablespoon melted.
  • 2 tablespoon milk
  • 1 cup sugar (150gms)
  • ½ cup water + 2 tablespoon more
  • 8-10 almonds slivered

How to make MOHANTHAAL (using Microwave)

  1. In a pan add water with sugar to make a sugar syrup. Start the flame and stir intermittently. We need a one string consistency syrup. Add a few pods of green cardamom to make it fragrant.
  2. While sugar syrup is getting ready, in a large mixing bowl take gram flour and add 2 tablespoon melted ghee and 2 table spoon milk. Combine ghee and milk in the flour with help of your palm.
  3. Now pass this flour through a thick sieve to get a bread crumb like grainy flour. ** If you wish to skip this step then jus rub in the ghee and milk and pulse the flour in a mixie jar for 5 seconds.
  4. In a microwave safe bowl, combine this flour and the 3/4 cup ghee and mix well. Microwave this mixture on high power(i did it on 800W for 5 minutes) stirring the flour after every one minute. Time and power may differ in varous models.
  5. Once the flour is evenly browned and fluffy its time to add the hot sugar syrup to this. Also add nutmeg powder and 2 tablespoon water.
  6. You are now just 3 minutes away from accomplishing this mishthaan. Again microwave on high for 3 minutes, stirring every 30 seconds. (You can increase/decrease depending on the consistency.)
  7. Once the moisture is dried, ghee starts to separate. Now its done(Do not wait until large quantity of ghee separate. Jus when you see little amount of ghee, stop further cooking.
  8. On a greased plate(used the remaining 1 tablespoon ghee), pour this and flatten with the help of back of a flat bowl/plate. Sprinkle almond slivers an allow it to cool.
  9. Score the pieces before it cools completely otherwise the shape would be distorted. Cut into squares(or desired shape) and store in airtight containers. Enjoy!!!
