Banana rasayana is a simple salad made using banana, fresh coconut and Jaggery. But during mango season it is also added with banana and in the same procedure we can make Jackfruit rasayana also or we can combine all the three fruits and make rasayana. It is a old dish from Karnataka, Mysore and South Canara region. Now a days I don’t add either jaggery or honey to banana rasayana instead I replace both with date syrup  banana rasayanaComing back to this recipe, I just coarsely grind fresh coconut and jaggery and directly add it to rasayana, but people in South Canara do it in a little different way by adding ground and strained coconut-jaggery milk. The good part in this recipe is we use roasted and ground black sesame seed powder. Black sesame seed is the healthiest food black sesame seeds chutney powder   We can get lot of health benefits by using it regularly. 

Mango banana rasayana can be consumed as such , but also goes very well with chapati, dosay/dosa, rice rotti , semiya, poha etc. It can be consumed during fasting as well
