Main Ingredients: Gram flour (besan), sugar/jaggery, oil
Manoharam or Parapu Thengai is a South Indian sweet that is associated with Tirunelveli in Tamil Nadu, though there are variations of this made in Kerala also. It is basically a sweet version of the popular Muruku or Chakli.
Rice and chick pea flours are added together with a a little oil and salt and kneaded into a dough in the right consistency. This dough is divided into smaller pieces and is extruded as thin straws into hot oil and fried.
Sugar or jaggery and water is heated over a low flame and a little dry ginger powder is added. When the syrup thickens, the fried straws are broken down into smaller pieces, added and stirred, ensuring that all the pieces are coated evenly with the syrup. When cooled, the outside texture is dry.
