Bale hannina rasayana or banana seekarane recipe explained with step by step pictures. Bale hannina rasayana or mangalore style banana rasayana is prepared using ripened banana, jaggery and coconut. Bale hannina rasayana is a very tasty recipe. This rasayana is generally served with either neer dose or thin poha or akki shavige. Rasayana is a yummy dessert prepared using banana, jaggery and coconut milk.

You can find one more rasayana or seekarane recipe on this website. If it is a Mango season, then prepare this yummy mango rasayana or mavina hannina rasayana. My Sister-in-law says it's a very good combination with chapathi..However I never tried that rasayana with chapathi.

This baale hannina rasayana is very popular across Karavali region of Karnataka. Bale hannina rasayana is familiar by name seekarane in other parts of Karnataka. Seekarane recipe is little different than rasayana. In seekarane little coconut and little cow milk is used. And seekarane is served with either poori or chapathi or obbattu. I have used small yellow bananas, which are not soar. Rasayana will be very tasty with these bananas. But if you don't get these type of bananas then go ahead with whatever you get.

You can find many banana recipes on this website like banana halwa, banana buns, banana milkshake, banana dosa and banana chips recipes.
