Beet and Carrot Halwa

Instead of making Halwa exclusively out of carrot or beetroot making them combined gives good colour and yields  more quantity . Moreover grating of beetroot is easier and just two large size beets yield more stuff. Adding some Khoya / Khoa  gives a mild chewy texture and makes it delightful...

Close the pan and pressure cook the stuff up to 6 or 7 whistles.
Once the pressure is released open the pan and again switch on the stove.














Keep stirring till  the stuff becomes dry.
Add the sugar and once again it becomes watery after adding sugar.

Now add two tea spoons of ghee and keep stirring.
When it thickens add the Khoya and stir well till the moisture evaporates.
