These gorgeous, sweet beetroot burfis are about to hit your mouth in their adorable bite-square form which is the most perfect thing ever for an After Lunch something sweet treat. The beauty of this recipe is not only in their gorgeous look but also in the simplicity factor.
Process beetroot shreds and coconut grates, saute them and cook with sugar, spread and garnish. Be done. Then eat beetroot burfi all the day and be a beet-princess. I would like to add a quick note that my little son loved them so much and is known to dig around the container for those little beetroot things at any and all times of the day.
Well, on this awesome Thursday I would be happy to announce that we are set to vacation as we do on yearly basis. When these sunny, sweaty days are unbearable in this Sand-world of UAE, we travel to our beloved, homely motherland where we are welcomed by downpours of Monsoon rain. So it’s the meeting of two extreme weather conditions in a row.
When I am on vacation, you never find me in kitchen cooking these blog recipes. Instead I do devour lot of food that my mother lovingly cooks for her daughter. Million other passions take over me during coming months and I am so excited about it all. (But you readers, your portion of recipes for the months have set already 🙂 ). Pass on that beetroot burfi please.
Do not get distracted from food as I ramble on my travel stories. This beetroot burfi is actually made from grated beet and coconut which are intentionally minced and sauteed to give the burfi a nice crumble texture. They are then cooked with sugar to help things stick and hold together to form a square shape. Top the square pieces with cashew or almond to make them still more pretty.
