  • 1 cup - rava
  • 1.5 cups - Sugar
  • 3 cups - water
  • 1 - medium-sized rose (rose petals)
  • 2 tbsp - grated Beetroot juice
  • 8-10 - finely sliced Pistachios
  • 1/4 tsp - Cardamom powder
  • 2 tbsp - Ghee
  • 2-3 drops - rose water
  • How to Make Rose Petals Beetroot Semolina Cakes:

    1. Sieve the rava in a plate and grate the beetroot for preparing the beetroot juice.
    2. Roughly chop the rose petals too and keep aside.
    3. Heat ghee in a non-stick kadai, add rava and stir for a few seconds.
    4. Add water and mix well and let it simmer on low flame for about 5-7 minutes.
    5. Add sugar and mix nicely.
    6. After 2-3 minutes, start adding the beetroot juice very slowly. Keep mixing. Stop adding the juice once the colour of the preparation turns the perfect pink.
    7. Add the chopped rose petals and rose water and mix slowly. Turn off the flame.
    8. Pour the mixture on to a greased plate.
    9. Spread evenly by gently tapping the plate on your slab and spread it neatly with a spatula.
    10. Sprinkle cardamom powder and pistachios.
    11. Keep the plate aside for about 35-40 minutes.
    12. Once the mixture has cooled down a little, keep the plate (uncovered) in the fridge for about 15-20 minutes.
    13. When the cake is fully set, put another plate on top and turn the cake upside down.
    14. Cut into pieces.
