Beetroot White Chocolate Truffle

Beetroot white chocolate truffle is a fusion dessert where beetroot barfi can be repackaged into truffles using some white chocolate coating. This dessert is a quick way to repackage beetroot barfi for children. The combination of white and purple colours is a treat to the eye, while the contrasting flavours of white chocolate coconut coverings with gooey, rich beetroot centers are refreshing for the tongue.

Step 1 – Making Beetroot Barfi Filling

  • Once the beetroots are cooked, add sugar and let it cook in the open pan on medium heat till all the milk and water evaporates
  • Now add khoya, mix well (grate the khoya, it will be easier to mix with beetroot purrée)

Step 3 – Making the truffles
