Beetroot Halwa

22 Nov



Beetroot 3-4 medium
Sugar 1/2 – 1 cup
Green Cardamom 1
Milk 1 cup
Ghee 1 tbsp

Method of preparation:

Bruise the cardamom and crush the seeds inside.
Wash, remove ends, peel and grate beetroot on thicker side.
Heat ghee in a non-stick pan on medium high, add grated beetroot and stir for about 5 minutes.
Now add milk, crushed cardamom seeds and simmer for 10-15 minutes stirring occasionally.
When most of the milk is evaporated, add sugar and give it a quick stir.
Let it stay on medium heat for about 5 minutes or until the sugar starts to caramalize.
Serve hot or chilled.

Notes: Garnish with your favorite nuts like almonds, cashews etc…
