Serve a colourful dessert today!

When I choose Beetroot as my vegetable for the week I was trying to make up for all the hate I had for the vegetable. For beetroot vegetable used to be our staple vegetable in the hostel mess. The vegetable though I liked initially slowly I started hating it. the beetroots were boiled in water and then a tempering and coconut

The vegetable though I liked initially slowly I started hating it. The beetroots were boiled in water and then a tempering and coconut added to it.

The boiled water was retained in the vegetable healthy thought that was there is a limit to the amount of water one can tolerate. The water from the vegetable used to run right round the plate soaking everything on the plate everything appeared red!!!

Not a very pretty site when you peep in someone’s plate to see what was there for food. 🙂

But now I have come to like the vegetable especially now that I am struggling with my health related issues. This is just what the doctor ordered( Check here).

In the past, I have made from beetroot Roasted Beet Salad with Balsamic Reduction, Beetroot Cake and recently made Beetroot Smoothie, Beetroot Vegetable. Have some more coming up hopefully soon.

Anyway, today enjoy the Beetroot Halwa that tastes amazingly delicious. Mine was a tad bit too sweet not that I minded but you may not like it!!
