MANOHARAM RECIPE|KARTHIGAI DEEPAM RECIPES

Manoharam is a  traditional recipe in every brahmin family, especially during weddings , we make it as a paruppu thengai, with manoharam. It is basically making thenkuzhal and putting it in jaggery syrup and make balls out of it. It tastes awesome and my co-sister is a great fan of this. Many of us make this manoharam for Kathigai deepam too along with Karthigai Pori urundai and Verkdalai urundai. A must try recipe , though it may sound elaborate , i can say worth trying this manoharam for karthigai deepam.
