Beetroot Halwa

Ingredients:
3 cups grated Beetroot
3 cups Milk
1 1/2 - 2 cups Sugar
3-4 Cardamom / Elachi / Elakki
2-3 tsp Cashew nuts / Gerubeeja / Godambi
1-2 tsp Raisins / Ona Drakshi
3-4 tsp Ghee / Thuppa


Recipe:

Put the grated beetroot in a pressure cooker container and cook it without adding water.(3 whistles)
Put pieces of cashew nuts, little bit of ghee, fry it for few mins until it turns golden in color and keep it aside.
Put raisins and 1 tsp ghee in a pan. Fry it for few mins until it puffs and keep it aside.

Once the pressure goes off, pour the cooked beetroot in a thick bottomed vessel. Add milk and bring it to boil. Add sugar, keep the halwa in medium flame and stir this mixture once in 2-3 mins until all the milk gets dried up.

Add 2-3 tsp ghee and stir the halwa continuously in medium flame until ghee starts separating. Add fried raisins, smashed cardamom, fried cashew nuts and mix well.

Apply little bit of ghee to the plate, pour this halwa and spread it using one flat spoon as shown in the picture below.

Milk is not mandatory as i guess. We once forgot to add the milk and prepared the halwa like the way we prepare kumbalakayi halwa.. Beetroot halwa without milk tastes equally good.
