Beetroot Halwa


  • Add ghee (clarified butter) to the pan
  • Add beetroot
  • Cook for 5 minutes
  • Tip: Keep turning the beetroot around while cooking
  • Add 1 liter milk
  • Keep stirring the ingredients well
  • The mixture should turn pinkish in color
  • Leave open for 20-25 minutes so that the milk dries out
  • After the milk has reduced in quantity, add sugar
  • Tip: The sugar will leave its own water which, in turn, seeps into the mixture
  • After adding sugar the mixture changes color
  • Let the mixture cook for 20-225 minutes
  • Tip: Do not cover the pan as the Halwa (pudding) is getting cooked
  • Once the mixture has dried out, add the almond flakes
  • Add the elaichi powder (cardamom powder)
  • Add the pista powder (pistachio powder)
  • Give a quick stir and serve
