I was happy with the outcome of my experiment, but was not able to make balls out of manoharam. Reason being my hands do not generally bear heat. So ended up making manoharam bits instead of balls. I had adapted the Recipe 1 given by Srivalli .
This is one snack that my dad simply loves. I usually buy it from Grandsweets, but this time I was very happy to make it at home. It did taste good and everybody at home relished it.
I simply love the color of Manoharam. This is the effect of jaggery that I got specifically to make syrup - it is called " Pagu Vellam". It has a deep brown color and tastes yum. Jaggery syrup is a usual item on my dining table as people at home loves to have it with Idli, Dosa, Upma , etc.,
All it takes is a start, this post has made me realise how much I missed blogging on the whole. I will be back with more recipes. Enjoy.
