Beet Root Halwa - பீட் ருட் அல்வா

Halwa made with Root Vegetable.
Bright Coloured sweet to entice children. 
Beet root is high in Carbohydrates and Sugar.
It has the needed dietary fibre and its juice reduces blood pressure. 

Ingredients Needed:-
1. Beetroot. (here I used one small/medium size )
2. Milk to grind the beetroot. 
3. Sugar -  1/2 cup 
4. Ghee -  2 tsps

Ingredients for Garnishing:-
1.  Elaichi (Cardamom) Powder
2.  Grated Almonds
3.  Cashew Nuts - 6 nos. ( broken into pieces)

1.  Wash and peel the skin of the Beetroot and cut into big pieces.
2.  Grind it in a Mixer, adding generous amount of Milk, to a paste.
3.  Heat 1 tsp of Ghee, fry Cashew pieces and pour the Beetroot Mixer and Stir well.
4.  Cook it till raw smell of the Beetroot goes. By this time the milk is completely blended with the beetroot.

5.  Now, Add 1/2 cup of sugar and stir well till it thickens and leave sides. (see pic above)
6.  At this stage add the remaining Ghee.

Garnish with Elaichi Powder and Almonds.
