Banana rasayana / Bale hannu rasayana

Greetings to all of you.. :D :D

I prepared a rasayana (you can call it as a dessert) I used to prepare it when I was a kid too. That means kids can also try this out. In fact most of my recipes can be tried out by children too. They're so easy. :)I've seen many of them prepare this dessert in many different ways. I have my own style of making it :)

Here goes the recipe. :)

Ingredients: (For three people)

3 medium sized bananas (ordinary ones will do)
6-7 tsp Sugar
3 Glasses of milk


Chop the bananas as shown in the snap below.

Add all the sugar over it.

Mix both the ingredients with a spoon (preferably). Mix it gently. Don't put all your energy and mash the bananas. Just mild moves are enough.

Stop the mixing when it comes to consistency as shown below. Sugar automatically dissolves. No need to worry about it.

Now add milk little by little and stir the mixture gently. Add all the milk in this fashion by stiring the mixture gently.

Rasayana will look like this. See to it that you don't add too much milk and make it watery. Let it be creamy in texture. Serve it chilled always.

You can have it as it is, or you can have it with chapathis.

Try it out and do post your comment and queries :)

Happy cooking :)


  1. Hi,

    I remember I used to eat chapathi's only because there will be this wonderful side dish(or dessert)called Rasayana.

    And In Rasayana I prefer Jaggery than sugar and mashing it in hand coz the banana and jaggery taste will spread to each and every drop of Rasayana!

    And I remember my mother used to put a pinch of salt too.. I dont know whether its necessary or not.


  2. coconut milk is normally used in coastal karnataka..

  3. @neelihoovu I tried with jaggery yesterday. It tasted quite well :)

  4. @aak Will have to try with coconut milk too :)


I just hope I could explain the recipe elaborately. If you would like to add something, correct me or say something then go ahead :)
