Turn beetroot into a delicious sweet…

Burfi is a sugar-based Indian sweet, there are different variations of burfi, and can be made with several ingredients. I had made burfi with carrots before, so this time I went with beetroot. My man frowned when I told him this was made with beetroot, he took a tiny bite did a taste test, and then gobbled up. It was pretty darn delicious…

This can be made effortlessly in just 20 minutes, as soon as it’s served it will disappear in no time…
