Halwa by itself is a delicacy that none can resist, thanks to its rich, sugary taste and enticing, melt-in-the-mouth texture. Now, our favourite dessert got all the more exciting thanks to using a combination of grated beetroot, carrot and bottle gourd instead of any single vegetable! As a result, this Mixed Halwa has a more interesting appearance, texture and flavour too.
This combination is further fortified with crumbled mava to improve the texture and make it richer. A sprinkling of cardamom powder is enough to enhance the traditional appeal of this mithai while a garnish of cardamom adds to the excitement.
You can experiment with other garnishes like mixed nuts or even chopped fruits, as per your liking.You might even consider topping this Mixed Halwa, with a scoop from any of these Ice-creams , while serving.
