Beetroot Halwa

Though beetroot is available all through the year, I don't bring this very often for one reason.On seeing that requests will come for beetroot halwa.Though I like to eat that, the amount of sugar and ghee used for that makes me say ' no' . But this sinful dessert seems to be pretty ok once in a while.What do you think?


Beetroots                - 4 cups (grated)
Sugar                      - 13/4 cup(2 cups if you have a sweet tooth)
Whole milk              - 1 cup
Ghee                        - 1/2 cup
Green cardamom      - 4 (crushed)
cashews                    - few


Pressure cook beetroots along with milk for one whistle. Alternately, you can cook beetroots with in a heavy pot also.Once cooked until soft open the cooker/pot and cook until all the liquid evaporates.Then all sugar and keep stirring until everything comes together.Now start adding ghee little at a time and keep mixing.Add in the cashews  and keep cooking .Continue to add ghee and cook until all the ghee is done and you see the mixture turning into a mass  and oozing out ghee. Add crushed cardamom and give it a quick mix.
