mango rasayana recipe

before the mango season ends, i thought of sharing a few mango recipes. to make mango shikarni, use ripe, sweet, juicy and pulpy mangoes. i have used medium sized alphonso mangoes. you can use any sweet and ripe variety of mangoes.

this mango rasayana recipe is very easy to prepare and is liked by kids too. traditionally the mango pulp is squeezed with hands. if you want you can use a blender or mixer to puree mango. however, the taste of mango shikran made with pureed mangoes is very different than one made with squeezed mango pulp. i have also shared banana rasayana recipe earlier.

you can have mango shikarni just plain as a dessert or serve with pooris, neer dosa or chapatis.
