BEETROOT JUICE HALWA


It was a long time,since i had this on my mind,brought into action only yesterday.Unlike

carrots beetroot is not loved by many.I have posted a recipe of beetroot halwa before

Beetroot halwa.(the link to it),but it was grated beetroot halwa.This time it is made with

only the juice.Whew!the time taken was more than the grated one,but worth the try.Kids

who have an aversion to this healthy and nutrient vegetable,will surely love it.

Let’s get into the recipe now.

INGREDIENTS

4-5 medium sized beetroots

3/4 -1 cup sugar

1/4 tsp grated nutmeg

1/4 tsp.salt.

3/4 -1 cup ghee

3-4 tblsp.of cornflour

1/2 tsp.cardamon powder

few nuts (pistachios,cashewnuts,melon seeds)

METHOD

Extract 3 cups of juice from the beetroots  using a blender or juice extractor.

Heat a thick bottomed vessel or a non stick pan.Add the beetroot juice with half of the

ghee and cook for 10-15 minutes (the raw smell has to be out)

Mix the cornflour without lumps in a little water,and add to the beetroot mixture .Keep

mixing ,and you will see the mixture thicken..Do not allow the bottom to get burnt ,so

keep stirring.Next add the sugar and the spices.After you see the sugar blended well,add

the ghee gradually untill the mixture leaves the sides of the pan .Add the nuts and

transfer to a greased tray..Apply a tsp of ghee on top.Cut into shapes you like.
