 Mohanthal is a Gujarati cuisine dessert, I never know a North Indian Sweet will taste this much mild in sweetness. The coarse texture of the sweet is the main hit. When I read the recipe in the book I have no idea on this sweet.  After following the steps as mentioned in the book, the recipe turned out delicious.. 

I prepare this Delicious sweet for the sssshhhh cooking challenge, For the month of March I was paired with Priya, Writer of Priyasmenu page. She gave Nuts and Besan as my secret ingredient. I chose Moohanthal Recipe From Gujarati Cusine. A Rich Dessert will mild sweet taste. Gujarati Is a Western state in India. Many Gujarati dishes are distinctively sweet, salty, and spicy simultaneously. To know more about Gujarati Details check Here

In the second time I used the exact measurement as mentioned, then it came out like a charm. No one believe, a rich dessert will be this much mild in sweet.
