Beetroot Halwa is a unique dessert/sweet filled with the nutrition of Beetroot, khoya, milk and dry fruits. Serve it piping hot and beat all the stress! Here is how to make Beetroot Halwa at home.
Beetroot helps in boosting our stamina, it even reduces our blood pressure. As my mom tells me always, regular consumption of Beetroot helps in combating cancer as well. Moreover, Beetroot is also full of vitamin C, fiber and quintessential minerals such as manganese and potassium which makes it all the more lucrative for me!
For preparing Beetroot Halwa from scratch, all you need to do is cook grated Beetroot along with milk and after the milk comes to a boil, gets absorbed by Beetroot, it is cooked with ghee, sugar, and khoya.
I believe that making an Indian sweet seems incomplete without using dry fruits. Therefore, while Beetroot Halwa was almost ready, I quickly added some cardamom powder, cashew nuts, and almonds.
I even generously garnished it with almond, pistachio flakes and silver foil. Beetroot Halwa can be relished when it is piping hot or can be savoured when it gets a bit cooler! Prepare nutritious and finger-licking Beetroot Halwa without a reason or serve it to your guests during upcoming festivals, Beetroot Halwa is totally for the win! Have a quick look at its recipe:
