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. Many of us make this manoharam for Kathigai deepam 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.
