Easy Beetroot Halwa Recipe


This is possibly one of the easiest sweet you could think off apart from carrot halwa. I loved it so much, it tasted so rich and yummy.

I made this for my sister and when she tasted it, she told me that it doesn't taste like beetroot at all, it is more like carrot halwa, so rich, so sticky and milky. Totally divine..


Hope you will give this a try and let me know how it turns out for you..


Preparation Time : 10 mins
Cooking Time : 30 mins

Beetroots - 2 peeled and grated (around 2 cups)
