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
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.
