Rato Mohan

The Best Things in Life are Sweets.

Desserts are necessary to celebrate life. It surely has calories and is not recommended in high doses but a small portion makes life bearable. Nepalese people are usually sweet tooths and love to celebrate every festival or every joy with a tinge of sweetness. However, nepalese desserts are not ultra sweet like other desserts so it is not much harmful to the body if taken in measured quantity. Nepalese people are health conscious as they reside near the mountains and have to perform hazardous work or walk on steep roads. Gaining extra pounds make it difficult for them to perform their daily chores. The sweets are mostly prepared at home and enjoyed with family and friends with happiness.

We at Gurkhas bring you the best Nepalese desserts in Victoria. Our customers are usually travellers that love to taste different cuisines. Our attempt is to make them taste the flavors of Nepal sitting in Australia with the same enthusiasm. Our local customers have adopted Rato Mohan as a part of their dessert routine and consume it on a regular interval, keeping in check the calories level in the body.

If you are keen on making this dessert at home, here is a simple and quick recipe for you:


  • Oil
  • Salt
  • Sugar
  • Baking powder
  • Cottage cheese
  • Coconut powder
  • All-purpose flour(Maida)
  • Eggs(can be avoided for vegetarian recipe)


  • Take a large bowl and add 3 cups of all-purpose flour (Maida) to it. We recommend the highest quality flour as maida is made from the interior ingredients of wheat and this is the reason it is low in fibers. It is difficult to digest and this is the reason, it is advisable to consume only two balls of Rato Mohan in a day. This is the maximum limit.
  • Add 4-5 teaspoons of sugar. You can taste and check in case you like more sweetening. For the health-conscious, it is recommended to use as little as possible.
  • Stir the mixture well.
  • Now, add eggs to it to make it soft and protein-rich.
  • Stir it well to make a thick mixture.
  • Add baking powder on the top and mix it well again
  • Make it like a dough. Make sure it is non-sticky and soft
  • Keep it aside for 30 minutes by covering with a cotton cloth or lid
  • Now, take a deep vessel and pour 5-6 cups of water into it.
  • Once it is hot, add 3 cups of sugar into it.
  • Stir it for 20-25 minutes till you get a thick syrup
  • Now, take a deep pan and preheat it for 3-4 minutes.
  • Add oil as required for frying purpose
  • In the meanwhile, take the dough and make small balls out of it.
  • Add 2-3 balls together and cook it till it turns light brown in color
  • Take it out and keep it on the cloth towel or paper
  • Once they cool down, add them to the hot sugar syrup
  • Cover the vessel and keep it for 1 hour
  • After one hour, you will see the balls have become big in size and have soaked the sugar syrup
  • You can not take it out in the dish and sprinkle coconut powder on it. Coconut is rich in nutrients and helps in lowering sugar levels in the body. Adding this will balance the excess sugar consumed in Rato Mohan. 
  • You can consume it both hot and cold as well as keep it frozen for 1 week.
