Beetroot Bhapa Pithe

Sankranti is knocking at our door and every household would make various Sankranti treats such as Pithe, Patishapta to be enjoyed with Gur or Jaggery. Lot of coconut used too. From Gur’er Payesh to Gur’er Rosogolla, there are so many dishes. I chose to start the week with a Pithe which is traditional in Assamese homes but I have a twist by using Beetroot juice. #BeetrootBhapaPithe #MadhubishsKitchen
