I had 8 big beetroots lying in the fridge for quite sometime and I wanted to finish them off before they became soft. There was also some leftover sugar syrup of Gulab Jamuns in the fridge which I wanted to put it to use. Last time we used it for Pineapple Jam and this time it made its way to Beetroot Halwa. Milo quite often makes yummy Gajar Ka Halwa (Carrot Halwa) when carrots are in season and we all devour it. On the same lines I made this Beetroot Halwa for the first time and we all liked. So here is the recipe…
4 big beetroots peeled and grated,
3 cups milk,
Sugar as per your taste (I used 1.5 cups sugar syrup),
A handful of cashew nuts,
1 tbsp ghee,
1/4th tsp cardamom powder
In a heavy bottom pan, heat ghee and fry cashew nuts till light golden brown.
Add in the grated beetroot and keep stirring for approx 6 to 7 minutes till the raw smell of beetroot goes off.
Now add sugar, milk and cardamom powder and stir well. Keep stirring in between and let the milk evaporate. This will take approx 8 to 10 minutes.
Beetroot halwa is ready to be served.
