If you are craving for gajar ka halwa and gajar is not in the season,you can still fulfill your desire.Beetroot halwa is the substitute for this.Its taste is no different from gajar ka halwa and nutritionally rich too.Those, who don't love to eat beet as salad or include as vegetable,will also love to have it.Try once...
1/2 kg beetroot, grated
1/2 litre low fat Milk
2 tsp oil
1/2 tsp cardamom powder
Nuts (sliced almonds)and Raisins (4-5) for garnish
substitute sugar with sugar free natura
Wash and grate the beetroots. Take oil in the pan and saute the beetroot till it softens a little, approximately for about 5 minutes. Add in the milk. It will bubble up as it boils. Cook on a gentle flame for about 20 minutes stirring every 5 minutes. Add in the sugar free. Cook until all the milk is reduced and has been absorbed. It will result in a mushy mass.
Add in raisins and freshly crushed cardamom seeds and sliced almonds.
Serve warm.
