Beetroot Halwa is a vibrant coloured sweet dish. It is usually made with grated beetroot. I've shared that version of Beetroot Halwa before.

Today, I am going to share a different preparation. In this, we puree the beetroot and cook it with wheat flour. This gives a totally different texture and taste. Do give this beetroot wheat halwa a try.
