beetroot halwa is not as popular as carrot or sooji halwa but many people like it. it is very nutritious and healthy. excellent for kids who are usually not fond of beetroots. another way you can introduce beetroot to kids is by including them in chaat recipes. fresh grated beetroot goes well in the chaat. few more beetroot recipes on the blog are:

the method to make beetroot halwa is same as making carrot halwa recipe. the halwa has a beautiful color and looks good. you can make it more nutritious by addition of dry fruits. i have added cashews and flavored it with crushed cardamom powder. apart from cashews, you can also add raisins. i have also shared a quick version of beetroot halwa using mawa.

the only difference in gajar halwa and beetroot halwa is the taste, and the texture of beetroot halwa is moist. even though the other ingredients used are same, the taste of beetroot is visible in the halwa. so some folks might like gajar halwa more, some might prefer beetroot halwa.
