Beetroot Halwa is an easy and quick dessert that even beginners can make without any hassles!! I love halwa with vegetables, especially Aloo Halwa & Carrot Halwa . This Beetroot Halwa is a childhood favourite. I love to have this cold. With simple ingredients, this is a good way to include beetroot for kids, if they dont prefer to have it as a vegetable.

Now to the recipe…




[Preparation Time-10 mins : Cooking Time- 25 mins]

Ingredients :

  • Beetroot (grated) – 2 cups
  • Milk – 1 cup
  • Sugar – 3/4th cup
  • Cashews – few
  • Ghee – 1 tbsp





  • Wash, peel and grate the beetroot. Heat a heavy bottom kadai or a pressure cooker and add a tbsp of ghee. Saute the grated beetroot for a few mins until the raw smell goes off and it shrinks a bit.


  • Add boiled and cooled milk to the beetroot and pressure cook for 2-3 whistles. U can alternatively cook it in low-medium flame until the beetroot gets cooked and the milk evaporates.

  • Now add the sugar and heat it over low-medium flame. Once u add sugar the whole mixture will become runny. Continue to stir on low-medium flame. At a stage it will become thick and glossy. This is the right stage. Switch off the flame.

  • Heat a kadai with the rest of the ghee and roast cashews until golden brown. Add it to the Beetroot Halwa.

Thats it!! Lip-smacking Beetroot Halwa is ready!!

Serve warm or cold!!





  1. Make sure to saute the beetroot until the raw smell goes off, else the Beetroot Halwa will not taste good no matter for how long u cook it.
  2. Add sugar only after the beetroot gets cooked.
  3. Adding milk gives a creamy texture to the Beetroot Halwa.
  4. Stays well in the refrigerator for 2-3 days.
  5. Adjust sugar according to your preference.
