Mango rasayana recipe - Mavina hannina rasayana - How to make ambe rasayana

Mango rasayana recipe - Mango rasayana is a coconut based traditional dessert of  Karnataka prepared with mango, coconut and jaggery. It has creamy texture and delicious sweet taste of  jaggery and mango. Coconut paste and the cardamoms enhance the flavour. To get a smooth texture, coconut milk can be substituted in place of coconut paste. But we like the rough texture. So I have used coconut paste. I make rasayana with mashmelon (chibud), muskmelon, ripe banana (plantain) and mango. This is one of the best desserts I like to make often. You can prepare it within few minutes and during mango season it is usually served as a dessert after meal. Some even like to enjoy with pooris.
