Now Let's get on to check how to make this homemade beetroot jam recipe for toddlers and kids.



 

Preparation Time : 5 mins

Cooking Time : 15 mins

Total Time : 20 mins


Ingredients :

Beetroot - 500 g

Dates - 4-5

Sugar - 200 g

Cashew - 10

Ghee -1 tbsp

Cardamon -2


Method :

  1. Wash the beetroot in running water thoroughly. Peel the skin. Finely grate them using a grater. This helps the fibre content to retain in the beetroot.

  2. Transfer the grated beetroot and dates into a pressure cooker. Add little water as needed for pressure cooking. Pressure cook it for one whistles and switch off the flame.

  3. Once pressure released, open the cooker and add sugar/jaggery powder, crushed cardamon. Mix well.

  4. Stir it occasionally for few minutes until it reaches jam-like consistency. Keep the flame low to medium to avoid burning at the bottom. Switch off the flame once done.

Cool it down and store it in a sterilised glass container.

Notes :

  • Sweetener can be sugar, jaggery powder or jaggery.

  • The quantity of the sweetener depends on the sweetness of the beetroot.

  • Check the jam consistency by place a spoonful of jam in a plate and cool it down after cooling down. If no water separated, then it is the correct consistency for a jam.

  • Keep it refrigerated and consume within a couple of weeks.
