Beetroot Halwa


The other day when I saw beetroot at cheap price, I was tempted to buy more than needed. πŸ˜›Β  So other than making Poriyals and soups I casually goggled and found this halwa recipe. Similar to Gajar Halwa this one is a sure shot keeper as its more nutritious and healthier. I just pressure cooked with minimal ingredients and Viola, the halwa is ready. This one takes much lesser time and ghee than Gajar ka Halwa. Apt for people who want to diet and have a sweet tooth. πŸ™‚


Here goes the recipe.


Beetroots: 3 medium sized grated thick or thin

Sugar: 3-4 tbsp (Check Notes)

Ghee: 1 tbsp

Milk: ΒΌ- Β½ cup

Cashews, Raisins: 1 tbsp

To Garnish:

Almonds: 1 tbsp


  1. Heat a heavy bottom pan or pressure cooker, add ghee cashews, raisins. Fry golden brown.
  2. Add the beetroots and sautΓ© for a couple of minutes.
  3. Add milk and sugar, and bring it to boil.
  4. Pressure cook on medium flame for 2 whistles.
  5. Once pressure releases, open and simmer till its semi dry.
  6. Garnish with almond slices.
  7. Serve hot/ cold.



Add milk as needed, if the beetroots are juicy add little milk and cook. If you add all milk it will take more time to simmer.

Stays good for 3-4 days if refrigerated.



Hi, I am Kavita, the owner of this blog.There are many types of foodies; vegeterian, non vegetarian, eggeterian , so i thought foodies should be called "foodaterian". Hence the name.Like most of you, i too was an amateur cook who didn't know even the basics like how much water to be added to rice?. :) With time i have learned and would like to share and learn the recipes. Hope to get love and support from all you wonderful people. You can reach me at twitter:
