Instant Mohanthal with condensed milk

This is a famous Gujarati sweet that is prepared for Diwali and popular in South India too.It is somewhat similar to Mysore pak but this is more milk based.Also the flour is fried in ghee for a long time until the color is completely changed.

Traditionally Mohanthal is prepared by mixing Khoya to the fried flour and adding to the sugar syrup.
However I have adapted an easy version from Tarladalal that can be prepared really quickly with condensed milk.

Besan flour: 3 cups
Condensed milk: 1 can (400 gms)
Milk: 2 tablespoons
Ghee: 1 cup
Chopped almonds/Pistachios: 2 tablespoons

Mix the milk and besan to gether so that it becomes crumbly

Heat the ghee in the pan and add the besan flour mixture.
Fry the besan until the color changes to brown.

Step 3:
Add condensed milk and cook until the mixture becomes thick and fluffy

Pour the mixture in a greased pan and garnish with chopped pistachios and almonds

Allow to cool and set for 20 minutes and cut into desired shapes.

Roast the flour until the color changes to brown. Do this in low flame and make sure that the flour does not get burnt
After adding condensed milk cook until the mixture is fluffy. In case the mohan thal does not set even after 30 minutes (is still sticky) transfer to the pan and cook for a couple of more minutes
