How to Make Beetroot Halwa Recipe

Beetroot cooked with sugar and milk or khoya or milk makes a dessert called beetroot halwa which is loved by the ones who love the flavor of beetroot and liked by the ones who are not much fond of beetroot. Traditionally the beetroot halwa is prepared just as gajar ka halwa i.e. by cooking the shredded beetroot with milk till it thickens and then adding sugar and other ingredients. However, this beetroot halwa recipe is a very easy and quick recipe for this dessert. This beetroot halwa recipe uses milk powder instead of milk or khoya. The use of milk powder reduces the efforts and time required to make the beetroot halwa.

How to make Beetroot Halwa without Milk?

This recipe is the answer to the above question. As already mentioned this recipe uses milk. However, you can also use khoya instead of milk. If you don’t have khoya you can make instant khoya using milk powder. Khoya or mawa gives a grainy texture to the halwa. I like a smooth texture of halwa; therefore I have used milk powder. Likewise, condensed milk can also be used as used in this recipe for gajar ka halwa.

Hi! I am CA Vini Mehta. A Chartered Accountant by profession, a food blogger by passion! First of all, I would like to thank you for stopping by at Viniscookbook, I hope you have a good time. Here, yo...u will find the recipes which have been tried, at times re-tried in my kitchen and relished on the dining table. I am mother of two kids and the wife of a person with a high and selective taste sense, so basically anything, before finding its place on the blog, has many levels to cross and clear. This journey started a couple of years back. Before that I was making the most usual kind of food. The only experiment used to be asking my mother how to make something new or different☺. Then, one day, I tried a recipe for butter cookies. And they did not get to go in the container as they were over before I could store them. That day I was introduced to the joy of experimenting with recipes. And I loved everything else that followed especially garnishing and photographing food. I am still not well versed with the photography dos and don’ts but I love to experiment and learn, be it photography or cooking. Hope you too enjoy this journey as much as I do☺! Stay healthy, stay tuned!.
