Peel the beets and cut into thin slices. Peel the onion and finely chop. Sauté the onion with the beets and ginger in hot ghee for 2-3 minutes. Sprinkle with sugar and deglaze with the vinegar and the broth. Simmer, stirring occasionally, about 50 minutes.
Remove and set aside a few slices of beets and puree the rest. Reserve 4 tablespoons coconut milk for garnish and stir the rest into the pureed beets. Bring to a boil and then simmer briefly, adding a little more coconut milk or broth as needed to adjust consistency. Season with salt and cayenne pepper to taste and transfer to serving bowls.
Arrange the beet slices on top of the soup and garnish with the remaining coconut milk and shredded coconut. Serve warm.
