beetroot poli - sweet recipe with beetroot, which is really a fusion dessert with a veggie like beetroot.Thought of making masala from the beetroot as usual but finally ended up making the recipe in a sweet form.I adapted the recipe from here.We both like beets in any form but i dont like it in soup form.I like that in salads and in half cooked way and also in yummy payasams.

Add cardamom seeds instead of cardamom powder which gives aroma but little lighter than adding cardamom powder.I never like cardamom aroma in sweets or any kheers but after i start to cook and explore various recipes , am able to tolerate it.I love the addition of cardamom pods in curries and biryanis but not in sweets,dont know why.So i added the seeds not the powder.Saute the mixture well and then proceed,make sure the water content in beets get evaporates before adding sugar,otherwise the mixture becomes soggy.lets move on making the recipe.,
