Rasayana - Banana & Almonds with Jaggery

Tuesday, February 24, 2009

We all love fruit salads don't we? Ever since I remember, I have always loved fruits. As a kid, I gorged on them like there is no tommorow.

Today I have for you a super easy fruit salad, made with banana chunks, coconut & jaggery. This is more of a traditional salad made during the olden days mainly as an offering to God, I made this today for Maha Shivratri ...

You Will Need:
  • 3 Bananas ( any variety ) - cut into round chunks
  • 2 tbsp grated jaggery
  • 2 tbsp grated coconut
  • 2 tbsp almonds - chopped


  • Mix in banana chunks, grated jaggery, grated coconut in a large bowl
  • Garnish with chopped almonds
  • Chill for 30 minutes before serving

Enjoi !!!

If you want to cut down on custard & sugar in fruit salads, then this is for you ..

This one does taste different from the regular fruit salads. The slight sweetness from jaggery & creamy coconut coats well with banana & chopped almonds add a nice cruch. I sometimes have this as an evening snack too ..


  • Serve as a dessert topped with vanilla ice cream.
  • Though, traditional Rasayana calls for bananas, you could add other fruits like apple, pineapple, orange, grapes etc. to this
