Belated happy new year and pongal wishes to all my friends and readers.This is the first time that i took a long break in this one year of blogging.Went for a short vacation to my home town and it was short and sweet.Kids had a great time with ammamma(granny) and my sister family.Kid one cried a lot when we were coming back which i do very often and this time i controlled myself but kids couldn't.
This cake was supposed to go to mahima's event but i was away and didn't had net connection at mom's place.

Beetroot 1/2 cup (grated)
