Beetroot Dates Halwa

In my space, i already have beetroot halwa recipe.But this halwa is quite different,we use dates for sweet instead of sugar.This halwa  can be prepared in 15 mins and also it's sugarfree. That's cool,right? When i saw this halwa in sharmispassion, it tempted me a lot. So immediately , i tried this and we totally loved it.

This halwa doesnt need require lot of ghee and also it's sugarfree, so if you're diet conscious,without hestitation, you can have this. Now let see the procedure.


Beetroot - 1 medium size(yields 1 cup when grated)
Black Dates - 14 nos
Ghee - 2 tsp
Cashew - few
Milk - 3/4 cup
Cardamom powder - 1/4 tsp
Peel the beetroot and grate it. Remove the seed from dates and chop it roughly.

Heat 1 tsp ghee in a pan, fry the cashews, when the cashews turns golden brown, add the grated beetroot and saute it well for 2 min.

Then add the dates and mix it well. Now add milk and allow to cook in medium flame until the milk is absorbed. It takes around 10 mins.

Finally add the cardamom powder and remaining 1 tsp ghee , mix it well.

At this stage, it leaves the side of the pan, switch off the flame.

Serve this yummy beetroot halwa as warm or cold. Either way it tastes great.


  • You can use normal dates instead of black dates.
  • Even you can grind the dates and add it.
  • Adjust the dates according to the sweetness of the beetroot.
