Notes:

  1. Adding 1 tsp ghee is optional but it gives that taste and feeling of usual halwa made of lot of ghee.
  2. To save time, you can roughly chop the beetroot and grind it to a paste instead of grating.
  3. I used Medjool (softer variety) of dates, so it was easy to grind with milk.
  4. If you are using harder variety, soak it in warm milk or water for 15 minutes before grinding.
  5. Coconut oil is must. Please do not use any other oil.
