Beetroot Barfi

Ingredients to make Beetroot Barfi

  • Three medium Beetroots grated finely . ( Don’t make it too mushy and watery )
  • ghee 3 tablespoon
  • cardamom powder 1 teaspoon
  • Grated coconut equal cup .
  • Palm candies 1.5 cup

How to make Beetroot Barfi

  1. Heat ghee in a wide nonstick / ceramic pan .
  2. Add the grated beets and sauté till the raw smell leaves . Do this under low flame so that the beets wouldn’t burn and turn darker .
  3. Now add the grated coconuts and sauté for two to three minutes till the Beetroot and coconut blends together .
  4. Add the palm candies . Palm candies doesn’t melt quick like sugar , so maintain a low flame and keep stirring continuously till the palm candies dissolve . You can also powder the palm candies coarsely in a grinder and use that too . Add the cardamom powder to the pan .
  5. Palm candies melt and the Beetroot carrot mixture would turn watery . Now keep stirring continuously and cook till the water evaporates completely . At this stage. you could see the barfi leaving the pan easily and not sticking to the pan .
  6. This is the consistency .
  7. Grease a tray with little ghee and pour this barfi to the tray . Level it using a flat spoon / spatula .
  8. Don’t disturb this when hot . Cut the barfis into desired shapes once it turns warm . Dont cool completely and cut . The barfis would turn firm and you wouldn’t be able to cut into shapes as the firmed barfis would break .
  9. Beetroot barfis are ready . Store it an airtight container box for retaining its freshness for about a week ‘s time . When refrigerated , it stays food for about three weeks .

My Tip:

Don’t add extra ghee and water . The consistency would turn to halwa . Keep stirring the Beetroot coconut mixture continuously for the right consistency . Cut the barfis when they are warm and don’t wait till turn cool .
