Microwave Beetroot Halwa

I usually do my halwa on stove top. There is no reason for it. I was taught to cook halwa using that method. With Microwave playing a major role in modern cooking, I wanted to try halwa using m/w. Moreover, I wanted to sent something for MEC- Halwa.

Microwave Beetroot Halwa

This is the beetroot halwa recipe on stove top. Both the methods are easy as far as I am concerned. The only tough part is grating the vegetable. If you have a blender, even this part becomes easy. I like to grate it traditionally with the help of a hand grater so it takes some effort from my side. But it is all worth it.

Here is what you will need to do the beetroot halwa in microwave


1 cup beetroot, grated
3/4 cup of powdered sugar
1 cup of milk
1/4 cup of ghee, clarified butter or butter
2 cardamom whole
Few fried cashew


In a microwave safe bowl, melt butter for 30 sec in high.

Now add the nuts, cardamom and fry them for 30sec in high.

Now add the grated beetroot and cook them at high for 2 min.

Now add milk and cook for 3 min in high. Stir after every 1 min.

Check if the beetroot is cooked. Else, cook it for another 3 min in high.

Add the sugar and mix well. cook it for another 2 min in high, stirring after every 1 min.

Rest it for 5 min before serving.

Beetroot halwa is ready. You can serve it hot or cold. Either way it makes a great dessert.
