BEETROOT HALWA (Sweet made with Beetroot)

Beetroot Halwa


I had few bettrots remaining in my fridge...i wasthinking what will i make with it as no one in my home (other than me) is found of beetroot.... So i thought one easy way was to make halwa which is very healthy and i was sure will be eaten by all ;)...

Ingredients:
Beetroot - 2 cups (peeled and grated)
Milk - 2 cups
Sugar - 3/4 cup
Ghee - 2tbsp
Cardamom Powder - 1/4 tsp
Almond Slivers - few

Preparaton:
Add in ghee in a pan. Once ghee becomes hot add in the grated beetroot and saute till beetroot becomes soft and cooked. Then add in the milk and cook on low flame till all the milk is evaporated. For me it took almost 20-25 mins. Just keep stirring now and then. Once milk has been evaporated add in the powdered cardamom and sugar and saute for about 5 mins. Adding sugar will cause the mix to be a bit watery. keep stirring for 5 mins. then switch of flame and garnish with almond slivers. Serve warm :)

Cheers,
Neetz ;)
