banana rasayana recipe

Banana rasayana is a sweet dessert like dish. for Navratri fasting, you can have or serve banana rasayana just plain as a dessert. Or else for regular days you can serve it with chapatis, poori or neer dosa or set dosa. The recipe is similar in preparation with the Maharashtrian banana shikran. The difference here is that in shikran milk is added, while in rasayana, coconut milk is added.

You can even make rasayana with fruits like mango, sapota (chikoo), pear or apples. I have also posted Mango rasayana recipe. coconut milk with fruits always taste good. I have used jaggery in the recipe, but you can also add sugar or skip either. In the dish you can add less or more coconut milk as per your preference. This dish is very quick to make, if you have coconut milk ready. Though homemade coconut milk tastes good, but you can use store brought coconut milk too.

I also make a similar recipe with poha and coconut milk or milk. We call it milk aval poha or doodh poha. If you have ripe bananas at home and wondering what to do with them. Then don’t worry, you can make a variety of recipes from them like Banana sheera, banana cake.

Serve banana rasayana as soon as its made. if there is any leftover, then refrigerate. since coconut milk is used, its better to keep in the fridge.
