Beetroot halwa


Here I bring you a vegetable turning delicacy recipe.Firstly I would like to give a short note on the benefits of this root.Whether consumed as a juice,salad vegetable,or halwa,or cake(red velvet cake),it’s nutrients are full.Beetroot helps to lower blood pressure,bad cholesterol.The iron content is high,thus creating energy….and if I have to write about the benefits of this vegetable I have to write a long story..so let’s go to the recipe
Ingredients
3 beetroots finely grated
1+1/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup kova or half cup cream or milk
1/4 tsp.cardamon powder
Ghee 1/4 -1/2 cup
Sliced almonds/cashewnuts/watermelon seeds
a pinch of salt.
Heat half of the ghee in a heavy bottomed vessel,and cook the beetroot, till the raw smell disappears.Next add the kova or the milk and salt and cook till for a further 5 minutes or till well blended.Now add sugar,and keep stirring till thick.gradually add remaining ghee.Add cardamon powder n nuts n mix till the mixture leaves the sides of the pan.Put onto a greased plate and flatten with a little ghee on top to get the shiny look.Can be served warm.
