Sugar Free Gujarati Mohanthal

My dad has diabetes and that means he cannot enjoy all the sweets that we so greedily devour in the festival season like Diali. I therefore thought of treating him this Diwali with a sugar free version of his favorite Gujarati "Mohanthal". It turned out really well with Sugarfree Natura. I am sharing the recipe here with you. If you have a loved one with diabetes and you don't want them to feel left out on the good things in life then try "Sugarfree Natura" today!


Ingredients:
 4 cups of gram flour
1/4 cup milk
1 tablespoon cardamom powder
2-1/4 cups ghee
1 bottle of Sugarfree Natura (minimum 200 gms)
1/2 cup finely chopped almonds and pistachios

Recipe:
  1. Take a large plate or a pan and grease its sides and bottom with ghee and keep ready before beginning the procedure. 
  2. Take a large bowl full of gram flour, add 1-1/2 cups of ghee to the same, mix to break crumbs.
  3. Add milk and stir. Mix well by rubbing in between palms so ass to break the lumps formed. 
  4. In another large sauce pan heat the remaining ghee, and add the flour mixture made above by continuous mixing till it turns golden brown. 
  5. Add the nuts and cardamom till it is well combined. Judge by the emanating aroma.
  6. Heat the remaining ghee in a large sauce pan and add the above flour mixture, stirring continuously until golden brown and releases a roasted aroma about 7 to 10 minutes. Stir in the nuts and cardamom until combined.
  7. In another vessel mix sugar free in a warm water.
  8. Gradually add the sugar-free syrup thus prepared. keep mixing till it thickens. Do not stir too long else the paste shall become too rubbery.
  9. Taste the mix, if needed add more sugar free powder after dissolving in water. Please do not add the powder. 
  10. Turn off heat and transfer the Mohanthal mixture into the greased rectangular pan, leveling such that the Mohanthal is about two inches in height.
  11. Run a knife or the sharp edge of the mixing steel spoon to cut square pieces immediately once the mix is set in the greased pan.
  12. Your sugar free Mohanthal is ready.
  13. You can store it at room temperature for 3-4 days or upto 15 days in refrigerator.
