Beetroot Halwa

Halwa is a delicious sweet dessert from India. I love halwas from my childhood, My uncle will always buy halwas for me when he visits my home. The taste and its  flavour is mouthwatering. 

Beetroot is a sweet and earthy vegetable  and its low in calories and contains vitamins, minerals and also packed with antioxidants. It gives you stamina, blood flood and increase white blood cells also  controls low blood pressure. It reduces the possibility of heart attack ans stroke. Beetroot greens also has an excellent source of folic acid and a very good source of fibre, manganese and pottasium.
