Beetroot Kheer for Repost Event


I'm happy that I could send this entry to Jaya atleast today before the end of the event date. I felt happy when I saw Jaya's event announcement because I got so many posts without any single comment. I selected this post for REPOST EVENT, because I love anything made out of Beetroot. Although, this kheer participated in RV's "DDPI" event, I didn't receive comments at all. Actually, when my friend called me and asked for some Kheer recipe, I gave her the usual Carrot Kheer recipe. Later, she said that her whole family and friends liked it. Also, she asked for other kheer recipes. That day, I bought home these beets for making halwa. On hearing my friend's request, I just dropped that idea and ventured in to making kheer with it. When I started to make it, I was not sure about the outcome. To my surprise, it came out well and my friend too liked the taste and nowadays, she is often preparing it for any party at her place. What I have given below is the another version of the kheer. My original post and the recipe goes here.




Ingredients:

1. Beet root - 2 ( Medium sized)
2. Milk - 5 Cups
3. Sugar - 1 Cup (More or less according to your taste)
4. Cashew - 1/2 Cup
5. Saffron - Small qty (Optional)

Procedure:

1. Wash, peel and cut beetroot.
2. Soak cashew for about 30 minutes.
3. Take a vessel, add cut beet roots and cashew.
4. Now, add little quantity of milk (just enough to cover beets & cashews) and keep it inside pressure cooker.
5. Pressure cook it for atleast 15 minutes.
6. Now, boil the remaining milk with sugar and allow it to cool.
7. Grind the cooked beetroot and cashew.
8. Mix the contents to the cooled milk.
9. Garnish with saffron strands.
10.Serve chilled.

This goes to Jaya's Repost Event.
