2 cups (grated) beetroot
1 cup sugar
2 cups milk
3 pistachios( optional)
3 almonds( optional)
Heat 1 tbsp of ghee in a pan add beetroots and saute for a min,then add the milk and boil on medium flame until the milk evaporates and the beetroots become soft and cooked .
Meanwhile in another pan heat the remaining ghee,roast the nuts,cardamom and keep it aside.
Now add the sugar and stir to mix them well.Cook on medium flame for 5 mins .
The sugar will leave some water and starts to thicken.
Once the sugar blends with the beetroots, add the nuts and cardamom.Switch off the flame.
