I like Beet with Potatoes, and in salads, but I never knew that Beet halwa would taste so good. It was as tasty if not better than my gajjar ka halwa. And the food value of Beet is well known. This is the healthiest dessert I ever tasted and very very yummy too.
Do try it out. It will be well worth the effort.....but my pot is all red ....
Peel and then grate 3 medium sized beets well.
Heat 1 TBS desi ghee or butter in a pan.
Put one bayleaf and then add the grated beet.
saute and then cover and cook in low heat for 1o minutes.
Mix from time to time so that beet don't stick to pan.
Increase heat and then add half a litre of milk and sugar measured to your taste. Add some crushed cardamom ( you may use powdered.
Add semi crushed cashewnuts.
Cook till milk evaporates and mixture becomes dry like in the picture.
PS: this recipe was inspired by Mika's dish
