Besan Chakki

1/160 ƒ/6.3 ISO 640 55 mm

Also known as Mohanthal this is perhaps one of my favorite sweets of all time. Made from crushed besan its always moist, moist from the pure ghee that makes up about one third of its weight. It signifies decadence and was one of the main dishes made at royal weddings.
