  • 1 cup grated beets
  • 1/2 cup ghee
  • 1 tsp ground cardamom
  • 1/2 can / 7-8 oz sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 tbsp cashew nut bits
  • Edible silver leaf flakes / vark – a few , optional


  • Heat the ghee in a heavy bottomed pan and add the cashew nut bits to it. Once they turn golden brown, drain them out from the ghee and onto a bowl.
  • In the remaining ghee, add the grated beet. Over medium heat, cook the beets, stirring continuously. Once the oil starts leaving the sides of the beets and the beets have a sweeter caramelized scent to it, add the condensed milk. Be careful as it may splash.
  • Keep stirring and cooking the beets in condensed milk, till it all comes together and the ghee starts leaving the sides of the halwa in the pan. Cook for a few more minute, don’t stop stirring, over low heat and remove from heat.
  • Move to a serving bowl, top with fried cashews and the edible silver flakes . Serve warm.
