Beet root Halwa quick and easy with condensed milk | Quick Dessert with Beets and Sweetened condensed milk

Wishing you all a Very Happy and Prosperous New Year.Let this year fill your homes with Love , Joy and Peace !!!

Wanted to end this year on a sweet note.Bringing this super easy dessert for you all. All you need is some beets and condensed milk.The rest of the things are quite easy from pantry.

Hope to meet you all in the New Year with lot more interesting and traditional recipes!!

I'm using the regular beets here( beet roots ) here.But I'm sure golden beets look great for this recipe too.Also I like to have some texture to my Halwa , so I have not shredded them very fine.

The aroma from ghee and cardamom along with the crunch of the toasted nuts and the  rich flavors from milk makes me go for again and again.


Beets / Beet roots ..................... 4 cups, shredded
Sweetened Condensed Milk .....1/2 cup
Granulated Sugar .................... 1/2 cup (adjust )
Ghee / Clarified Butter .............. 3 to 4 tbsp
Assorted nuts .......................... 2 tbsp ( Cashews, Almonds, pistachios, pepitas)
Green Cardamom ...................... crushed seeds , 1/2 tsp


  • Heat a  wide and shallow pan with a tbsp of ghee and add the beets and saute for 5 minutes.
  • Then steam cook the beets( use a steamer / pressure cooker) * see notes
  • Mean while dry roast ( toast ) the nuts and chop them roughly.
  • Again use the same pan , add the cooked beets , condensed milk and sugar and cook till the moisture evaporates.
  • When you see they form a mass , add the ghee and cook for 3 more minutes.
  • Add the cardamom powder and along with some  nuts, reserving some for garnishing.
  • Turn off the heat when you see a glossy look on the top.


  • Do not add water to beets while pressure cooking.Use water in the cooker and a inner container with beet roots to cook this in steam.
