ABOUT Beetroot Halwa Laddus... RECIPE

An amazing fusion of halwa and laddus. This ravishing beetroot halwa given a new definition in the form of laddus by me. An exotic dessert par excellence. Taste and health both in one. This is a refreshing change and for the better - as it is not only easy but also an amazingly beautiful twist to the plain old halwa. Indulge in this super duper dessert idea by me and surprise your loved ones and friends both. This can be pressure cooked also but slow cooking gives it a unique flavour.
