BeetRoot Halwa


Beetroot - 250 gms
Sugar - 400 gms
Milk - 1 pint
Cardamom - 6
Cashews - 10
Ghee - 1 tsp

Cooking Method:

Grate the beetroots and keep it aside.Use only fresh beetroots as it is easy for grating. Do not use cooked beetroots. Heat 1 tsp of Ghee in a Sauce Pan and fry the Cashews for a min. Add 1 pint of milk and boil it for 12 mins. Now add the grated beetroot and boil it in milk for 15 mins. Finally add sugar and keep stirring till u get the thick halwa consistency(this process takes about half an hr). Garnish with cardamom. Ghee is used in minimal amt to roast the cashews, weight watchers need not worry. Itz highly nutritious. The total cooking time for this recipe is an hr but the output is too gud.

My favourite combo is Beetroot halwa with Vanilla icecream (Weight watchers stay away)
