Beetroot Kesari



 Beetroot Kesari

Today's recipe is beetroot halwa. It is special day as my blog baby has turned two.I can't believe that it is two years,but I am happy and so glad to be here and have made lot of good friends.I had this sweet recipe and having decided to post it as blog anniversary special,I just looked back to day one and my first post.What a coincidence! my first blog post was beetroot halwa :)
So you might have guessed how much I love this veggie. I adore its color,sweetness and earthy flavor. Add this to any dish it will give it a new look and in dessert a unique taste and aroma. I love beetroot halwa and rava kesari and this recipe is a blend of the two. Try this,you will surely love it.

Ingredients
Beetroot grated- 1 cup
Rava or Sooji- 1 cup
Sugar-2 cup
Water- 1 1/2 cups
Ghee- 1/2 cup
Cardamon-6-8
Rose essence- a few drops
Cashew nuts a few



Peel the outer skin and grate beetroot finely and keep aside.
In a heavy bottom pan heat two tsp of ghee and fry cashews and keep aside.
Roast rava till it starts changing color to golden and when a nice aroma comes. Keep this aside.
Add two tsp of ghee in the pan add grated beetroot and saute for about four to five minutes till the beetroot gets cooked and its raw flavor disappears. 
Bring water to boil and add into the fried beetroot. Allow this to come to a boil.Now add rava/sooji spreading out evenly. Mix well to avoid lumps and close lid just for a minute so that the rava gets cooked.Remove lid and  continuously stir till water evaporates and add sugar ,cardamon powder and the rest of the ghee. The mixture at this stage will become watery. Continue mixing and stir till it the mixture thickens and leaves the sides of the pan like a halwa .Garnish with cashew nuts and sprinkle rose essence on top.Grease plate with ghee and spread the mixture and let it get set and cool down and cut into desired shapes.




Happy Easter to all my friends and readers.
