Beetroot Rava Kesari (Beetroot Semolina Pudding Cake)

       Beetroot...Something which I couldn't really accept in a sweet dish..Decided to prepare this red sweety when I saw this recipe in my facebook friends page by Ummu Salma...Never ever thought it would turn out this perfect & the taste of beetroot had a different touch too... The below pic was taken just after preparation...You'll get more better perfect shapes after cooling..

       Beetroot is a super-storehouse of both vitamin C and iron, which is packed with good news for your body.... It is included with extra vitamin C and this vitamin helps increase iron absorbtion which enhances the production of the body’s natural mood-lifter & reduces your blood pressure too..... So it would seem that munching fresh beetroot can literally make you smile !!
      This kesari's color is soo tempting that anyone would want to taste...Once you taste you will look for more.......



1.Beetroot (grated)-1 cup
2.Rava (Semolina/Sooji) -1 cup
3.Ghee-5 heaped tbsp (un-melted)
4. Sugar-1 cup
5.Milk-1/2 cup
