Beetroot Halwa (Sweet Beetroot Pudding)

Beetroot halwa is an easy to make dessert using milk, grated beetroot, nuts, cardamom and sugar that is suitable for all special occasions; so try and relish.


Beetroot – 2 big
Milk - 3 cups
Sugar- 2 cups
Cardamom powder – 1 tsp
Cashew and pistachios - 10 to 12 pieces each (chopped)
Ghee- 2 to 3 tbsp


Wash, peel and grate the Beetroots (this will yield 4 cups approximately)

Roast the cashews and pistachios with ghee in a separate pan and keep aside (reserve some for garnishing). 

Heat ghee in a heavy bottomed pan; add the grated beetroots and saute till it becomes soft (It will take about 5 minutes).

Add milk and cook on medium heat till it evaporates and become thick.  After that add sugar, cardamom powder and roasted nuts.

Stir well and add the remaining ghee in between the process.

Once the halwa starts to leave the sides of the pan, transfer it to serving bowl and garnish with remaining nuts. 

Serve warm or chill. 


Adjust the sugar quantity according to your taste.

I have used full fat milk to give richness to the halwa.
