MaavinahaNNina rasa or SeekaraNe recipe

During Mango season and summer, we tend to eat lots of Mangoes, the king of fruits and also try some recipes using mangoes. Out of the various recipes, SeekaraNe or simply maavinahaNNina rasa is one that is easy to make, tasty and one that should be tried out.

SeekaraNe in other words thicker version of Mango milkshake. It is very popular across Karnataka and all over India. It is mouth-watering when served with Poori and delicious when served as  milkshake or juice in Summer.. It is also known as ‘aam ras’ in North India.

Ingredients Needed:

Mangoes – 3 to 4 ( any variety like alphanso, badam etc ) usually ripen type
Milk – 2 big glasses or approximately 1/4 litre of milk
Sugar – 10-12 spoonfuls
Cardamom – 2 to 3 powdered with sugar 1 spoon in mortar pestle/KuTTani or Mixer

Serving ideas and variations :-
