Manoharam- August ICC


This months ICC was Manoharam. I remember my mom would cook this during diwali but have never attempted to do this.
These recipes are from a cookbook authored by S. Meenakshi Ammal Vol 2 and shared by Lataji

I just followed it the way SRIVALLI had shown us except that the quantity was less


Rice flour(processed) 2 cups

Moong dal flour 1 cup

salt 1 tsp

butter 1tbsp

Jaggery 1/2 cup

oil for deep frying


Mix both the flours with salt. Then add the butter and mix lightly

Add the necessary amount of water to form a soft pliable dough

Make murukkus with the three hole slotted disc fitted murukku press

Deep fry on moderate heat and drain on an absorbent paper

cool and break them into small pieces.

Now add little water to jaggery and boil till the syrup forms hard roll ball consistency

Remove the syrup from fire and add the broken murukku pieces to it

When a little cool, roll them into small balls

Lovely, golden delicious Manoharam ready to be served

I never expected my daughter to like this, but she loved it!!!!!!! Thanks SRIVALLI.
