Laal Mohon Sweets Recipe


Whole Milk powder 1 cup

Baking powder 1 tsp

Semolina 3 tbsp

White flour 2 tbsp

Ghee 1 tbsp

Channa/Ricotta cheese 1 cup

Bread 1 pc

Sugar syrup

Sugar 2 cups

Water 3 cups

Cardamom 3-4 pcs


In a skillet, add 4 cups of water, 3 cups of sugar and 3-4 pcs of cardamoms. Bring the syrup to a boil and turn off heat, keep it aside.

Mix white flour, milk powder, semolina, baking powder, ghee in a plate. Mix all ingredients together uniformly. Soak 1 bread in 1/4 cup milk and add it to the mixture. Add channa/ ricotta cheese and begin to bring everything together to make a dough. The dough will have a sticky texture but not soggy. Grease your fingers with some ghee and make small equal sized balls.

Fry the balls in hot oil, the oil must be medium hot, not too hot as it may not cook inside. To check the right temperature of the oil, drop a small ball and check if it floats up and does not burn quickly. Fry all balls until they turn brown on all sides. Drain excess oil in a paper towel.

Make sure the sugar syrup is hot before adding the fried balls. Soak the fried balls in syrup, under closed lid, for 10 mins at low flame. Turn off heat and let it sit in syrup for another 20 minutes. Refrigerate and serve cold!
