Mango is a tropical fruit grown predominantly in India.Â There are several varieties of this delicious fruit.Â It is known as the king of fruits and is truly Indiaâ€™s gift to the world.Â Each state in India has its own variety and is proud of their mangoâ€™s distinct taste and smell.Â A fully ripened mango can make anyoneâ€™s taste buds come alive.
Rasayana is a dessert made using mango, coconut milk, and jaggery.Â 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).Â It can be served with dosa, chapathi, rice noodles (semige) or as a dessert by itself.
