Beetroot Halwa Recipe

Beetroot Halwa RecipeBeetroot halwa is one of the delicious halwa, if you follow my blog you would know my love for beets I have quite a few beetroot recipes already blogged but beetroot halwa was missing for long time I wanted to post this but somehow it was not happening until this time when I made it I decide to take pictures.  Today special halwa is to celebrate 5 years of blogging of Indian Khana and trust me it's just like yesterday it all started.  Also this happens to be 450th post of this blog.
I never thought I can come this far but then this happened to due the support I got through readers, bloggers friends, friends and family.  Whenever I take a break with no so enthu of starting blog again then few friends push me to do it.  There is lot to say but the bottom line is it has be amazing journey and totally fulfilling the most important thing is we learn a lot and I am still learning new things each passing day.  So celebrate this big occasion something has to be sweet right and this beets halwa just fits the bill.  If there is anything to describe this halwa then it's one word - delicious.

Beetroot Halwa Recipe

It's very easy and takes little time but then it's worth every minute we spend.  I did beetroot halwa in pressure cooker to cut down cooking time but still I make sure to saute the beets well and thus you won't find any difference in taste whether it's cooked in open pan or pressure cooker.  If you want to make this halwa more rich then add little khoya instead of condense milk and that's takes the halwa to all new level. Also I used little ghee but that was quite enough if you wish you can add more ghee to suit your needs and taste bud.
