Beetroot has always been one of my favorite vegetables. I love it because its healthy and colorful too!

I have tried many recipes from beetroot and  I will be posting it here eventually. 

This Beetroot halwa is light and healthy. Whenever you have some unexpected guests at home, if you have beetroot lying in your refrigerator you can transform it into halwa and just serve it. Tastes great and you will love it!

This halwa is my husband's favorite and whenever he feels like having some sweet dish he comes to me like a kid and says, do beetroot halwa no?.. so I keep doing this often and we enjoy it together.


4 cups of grated beetroot
2 cups of sugar
Cardamom/elachi powder
2-3 tea spoons of raisins and cashews
2-3 table spoons of  ghee


Peel off the skin and wash the beetroots.

Grate the beetroots and set it aside.

Now to a thick bottomed vessel, add the grated beetroot, sugar and 2 table spoon of ghee. Keeping the flow low, stir the mixture until it starts separating from the walls of the vessel. 

Once the mixture is thick, add cardamom power and pour it into a plate that is applied with a little ghee. Cut into shapes of your choice. Garnish with the ghee fried raisins and cashews. Refrigerate if required and Beetroot halwa is ready to be served.

This halwa can be stored for about 15 days without refrigeration.
