My husband and me both are sweet lovers, and you wont believe we complete half kg of sweets within two days and we dont get satisfied with one sweet and after meals it is incomplete for us without having sweet. When Iam at childhood my mom used to make lots of sweets for me and i prefer to have as a evening snack while come back from school.Among all these sweets i love to eat carrot halwa, when i get married i made carrot halwa as a first sweet,my hubby loved a lot.
Beetroot is a hated vegetable in my household, I dont know why my kids dont like this vegetable but even dont like it as a salad,so i never tried to make any dishes with this veggie.But yesterday i made this delicious beetroot halwa and i didnot believed that my kids began to eat this sweet and they liked so much.
