beetroot halwa recipe

i have already shared beetroot halwa recipe slow cooked in milk. the slow cooking and simmering in milk takes a lot of time but this recipe is a quick as well as an easy version. so thought of sharing the recipe for diwali.

the crimson reddish color on the halwa looks so pleasing to the eyes. if you taste the halwa, you won’t get the beetroot flavor and the halwa tastes similar to gajar halwa. i have added more dry fruits in the halwa. you can also make this halwa with less or no dry fruits.

serve khoya beetroot halwa as a dessert after meals or as a sweet. you can make this halwa ahead of time and refrigerate. it stays good for 4 to 5 days.

  2. Hi Dassan..
    Beetroot Halwa looks so yummy & colourful. Mouthwatering dish.. Can i use condense milk in this recipe?? If yes than in which step i have to add.??
    Thnk u..??

    • priyanka, you can use condensed milk, but then skip or reduce the sugar. add it in step 12. and continue to cook till the mixture thickens. add about 200 grams of condensed milk. meaning if using a can of 400 grams, the add half of the can.
