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.
4-5 medium sized beetroots
3/4 -1 cup sugar
1/4 tsp grated nutmeg
3/4 -1 cup ghee
3-4 tblsp.of cornflour
1/2 tsp.cardamon powder
few nuts (pistachios,cashewnuts,melon seeds)
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.
