My Beetroot Amlaki healthy sweet recipe

Amla Beetroot Indian dessert salad recipe (4)

Vegan Beetroot Amlaki sweet for my sweet tooth

I make this winter treat when Amlaki or gooseberry and beetroot, both powerful immunity boosting foods are fresh and in plenty:)

Soaking the beetroot and gooseberry for an hour in plain water is a simple way to rid them of residual pesticides. Now we are ready to start with the awesome sweet-making process.

Ah! Yes. Leftovers need not go in the fridge. Sundry the excess moisture in the hot North Indian winter sun. I mean hot November sun. Cover the sweet with a white muslin cloth and toss it a bit at the end of the day to dry it out evenly. Keep it in the sun for as long as needed. One to five days.

This has traditionally been the time to sun dry newly harvested rice in India, the Indian month of Kartik. :)

Prep Time:10 minutes

Cook Time: 2 minutes
