Beet Root Milk Shake...

Beet Root is good for increasing Hemoglobin in blood.  You can have this drink any time of the day.

Beet Root :  1 ( Medium size)
Sugar : 2 Table spoons
Milk : 1/2 Litre
Cardamom : 2 to 3 Pods.
Almonds : 4 to 6
Water : 1 Cup.
Method :
Wash Beetroot  and remove the skin and cut it in to small pieces.  Pressure cook beetroot pieces for 8 to 10 minutes.   Leave it for cooling.  Boil Milk and leave it for cooling. Remove cardamom skin and keep the seeds  aside.  Soak Almonds in hot water for 3 to 5 minutes and remove the skin  and keep the Almond Pods aside.
Now Put boiled  Beet Root and cardamom seeds and Almond pods in a mixi jar. Add 1/2 cup of water and grind till paste.  Add 1 cup of milk  and sugar to it and grind again for 1 minutes. Remove the mixture and put it in a big bowl.  Add remaining milk  and  water (if needed)  and mix thoroughly and serve Beet Root Milk Shake in a glass.  ( You can also keep this milk shake in  Fridge for 1 hour and then serve cool  Beet Root Milk  Shake.
Note :  Can Add  More Beet Roots ...It gives a thick texture .   Can Add more milk too. Do not put Ice cubes  .....while serving ...since it changed the taste.    Can use Honey instead of  sugar.     Add honey while grinding Beet Roots.     Beet Root Milk shake looks pink like Rose milk......No need to add any other flavour since  it does not go well with Beet Root.  
Serves :  3 to 4
