Mango Rasayana Recipe

Mango Dessert
Mango Rasaayana

Mango is a tropical fruit grown predominantly in India.  There are several varieties of this delicious fruit.  It is known as the king of fruits and is truly India’s gift to the world.  Each state in India has its own variety and is proud of their mango’s distinct taste and smell.  A fully ripened mango can make anyone’s taste buds come alive.

Rasayana is a dessert made using mango, coconut milk, and jaggery.  It is unique to the state of Karnataka, India and is a part of the menu in every house during the beginning of the mango season (late March).  It can be served with dosa, chapathi, rice noodles (semige) or as a dessert by itself.

I want to share this absolute delicacy with you today.


  • 4 ripe mangoes
  • 2 cup jaggery (available in Indian grocery stores in USA)
  • 2 tbsp organic sugar
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 tsp cardamom powder
  • 2 cups coconut milk

  • Peel the mangoes, ensuring no skin is left on them.
  • Cut the mangoes into cubes and shred them in to fine pieces.  Discard the seed.
  • In a big bowl, add the shredded mangoes, jaggery, coconut milk, salt and cardamom powder and mix them well
  • If you prefer more liquidity, add more coconut milk. Mango rasayana is ready.

Refrigerate for an hour before serving with dosa, chapathi, rice noodles or as a dessert. Happy Cooking!

  1. This looks like a great dessert. This is the first time I’ve ever heard of jaggery but after a quick google I have a better idea of what I need to look for at the grocery store – sounds like my kind of ingredient 🙂

  2. I love mangoes and I am blessed to live in a tropical country with the most succulent mangoes. This is a great addition to my mango eating spree! 🙂
