Beetroot Burfi

Happy Valentine’s Day!

This is my submission for Theme of the Week-Valentine’s Day event hosted by Pooja of http://creativepooja.blogspot.com

Ingredients:

Grated beetroot-2 cups
Fresh grated coconut-1 cup
Sugar-1 1/2 cup
Ghee-2 tablespoons
Powdered sugar and cardomam-1 teaspoon


Stirring the grated beetroot and coconut with the ghee…




Method:

  1. Heat one tablespoon of ghee in a pan and fry the grated be etroot for two minutes on a medium flame.
  2. Add the coconut and fry for two more minutes.
  3. Add the sugar and keep on stirring until the mixture thickens.
  4. Add the remaining ghee and stir until the ghee comes out from the mixture.
  5. Transfer the mixture onto a greased plate and cut into heart shaped pieces using a biscuit cutter. Sprinkle the cardamom and sugar powder on the top of them.



Jelly hearts…

I have used “Straw Berry Mambo…” jelly mix to make these cute hearts. Dissolve the powder in the water and boil it with sugar. Transfer it into a tray and allow it to cool. Refrigerate it to set and cut it into heart shaped pieces.
