Beetroot Halwa-Beetroot ka halwaHow to prepare Beetroot Halwa

Prep time-under 15 min
Cook time-under 30 min
Serves - 2

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)

Preparation

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.

Method

In the same pan, heat a tbsp of ghee, add grated beetroot and fry it till the raw smell goes.

Then add 2 cups of milk and cook the beetroot on low flames, 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 for a few more seconds.

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

Note -
Khoa is prepared by boiling milk in a heavy bottomed pan in low flames until it is thickened. I boiled 2 cups of milk in 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 grade beetroot using the grater with fine holes or bigger ones according to your preferences.

  19. Hi Padhu,
    just wanted to know whether we can use condensed milk/milkmaid instaed of khoya. would it change the taste?

    ReplyDelete
  20. Gigi -Yes, you can add condensed milk instead of khoya. There will be slight difference in taste.
