   Ingredients needed

   Beetroot grated - 2 cups heaped
   Sugar -3/4 cup
   Milk - 2 cups
   Cardamom powder -1/4 tsp
   Almonds/Badam - 10
   Cashew nuts - few
   Ghee - 1/4 cup
   Unsweetened Khoa/khoya - 100 grams (optional)


Wash, peel the skin and grate beetroot.

Put almonds in boiling water(blanch almonds), remove the skin and pat it dry. Cut it into thin strips.

Heat a tsp of ghee, fry cashew nuts and keep it aside.


In the same pan, heat a tbsp of ghee, add grated beetroot and fry on low heat until the raw smell goes.

Then add 2 cups of milk and cook the beetroot on low flame, stirring in between. Cook till the beetroot becomes soft and all the milk evaporates.

Then add sugar, khoa and cook till sugar dissolves and gets mixed well with the beetroot.

Add cardamom powder, remaining ghee and cook stirring for a few more seconds on low heat.

Garnish with cashew nuts, almonds and mix well. Serve hot or warm.

Note -Khoa is prepared by boiling milk in a heavy bottomed pan on low flames until it is thickened. I boiled 2 cups of milk on low flames until it thickened. You get ready made khoa also. Khoa is added just to give richness to the halwa and it is totally optional.

Using full fat milk gives richness to the halwa.

You can add blanched almonds or roasted almonds.

You can grate beetroot using the grater with fine holes or bigger ones according to your preferences.
