Description

Halva is one of the most delicious dishes you can make with beetroot.

Ingredients

2  
large fresh beetroot
1 l
milk
3 T
caster sugar
5 T
Unsalted butter
3 T
raisins
   
chopped cashew nuts (a small handful)
   
ground cardamom (pinch )

Instructions

1 Coarsely grate the beetroot. Place in a large, non-stick saucepan with the milk and cook, stirring occasionally, until the milk has dried off. It will take more than an hour.

2 Add the caster sugar and 4 tbsp of butter and cook, stirring, for another 15-20 minutes to help the beetroot caramelise. It will turn a lovely, deep red colour.

3 Meanwhile, gently heat 1 tsp of unsalted butter in a pan, then fry all the raisins with the cashews and a pinch of ground cardamom until the nuts are lightly golden.

Stir into the halva. Taste, adjust the sugar and serve hot.
