Resuming after a while with a new and sweet recipe which is awesome in taste.Comparing to other recipes made with beetroot this
one tops it all!
Beetroot Katli sold by one organic store in Chennai,is the favourite of my family.An almond wrapped in this Katli mixture, shaped
like an almond,oval in shape are little wonders,addictive in taste.
Awed,inspired …by the sweet taste ,I tried my hand at this burfi with my innovation.
Now to a brief narrate…I boiled beetroot in excess for a salad,and bottled up the remaining in the fridge.Now.. this beetroot which
was in my mind to use for cosmetic purposes, became a sweet with combinations I never planned.
Melt in mouth, minutes to prepare, no skill required just a one pot stir to this wonderful addictive sweet ‘BEETROOT-BADAM-
To the recipe now..
1 cup boiled and grated beetroot
1 cup powdered almonds
1 cup grated coconut
3/4 cup-1 cup sugar
1 tbsp ghee

1/2 tsp cardamon powder
a few pistachios (optional)
Add all the ingredients to a thick bottomed pan. Keep stirring on medium flame till the mixture holds into one lump .
Grease a tray with a little ghee,flatten the mixture and allow to cool before you cut into shapes.
Variation:Cashewnuts can be used instead of Almonds .
No water is required in the preparation .
