Healthful garlic is a surprise addition to this soup, but blends beautifully with dainty beetroot, which is another interesting reservoir of nutrients in this healthy Indian soup. Beetroot helps improve your looks, with better complexion and hair. Betacyanin, the antioxidant in beetroot, helps to reduce the cholesterol levels and protect the heart too.

To make garlicky beetroot soup, combine the beetroot with enough water in a pressure cooker and pressure cook for 4 whistles. Allow the steam to escape before opening the lid. Drain out the excess water and keep aside to cool slightly. Peel the beetroot and roughly chop them. Combine the chopped beetroot with 1 cup of water in a mixer and blend into a smooth mixture. Keep aside. Heat the butter in a deep non-stick pan, add the whole wheat flour and cook on a medium flame for 1 minute, while stirring continuously. Add the milk, mix well using a whisk and cook on a medium flame for 1 minute or till no lumps remain, while stirring continuously. Add the beetroot mixture, garlic paste, salt, pepper and 1 cup of water, mix well and cook on a medium flame for 1 to 2 minutes, while stirring occasionally. Serve immediately.

This beet soup with garlic is sure to win your heart with its lovely colour, irresistible creaminess and zesty flavour.

Use of low fat butter and low fat milk, further helps in keeping its calorie count under check, thus this beet soup with garlic can be relished by weight watchers, women with PCOS and heart patients. With no addition of sugar, a small portion can be enjoyed by diabetics as well.
