Balehannu Rasayana | Vegan Banana Dessert : Beginner Series

A very simple, no cook & easy to whip vegan banana Indian dessert! One more good example for "less is more". There are many versions of this simple banana dessert. This is one of the neivedyam/prasadam recipes. 

Preparation Time: 10 mins
Cooking Time: Nil


  • Ripened & Firm Bananas*: 3 nos (refer notes)
  • Jaggery/Brown sugar: 3 tbsp
  • Fresh grated coconut: 3 tbsp, fresh or frozen
  • Cardamom: 1 no
  • Chopped nuts: 1 tbsp (I used almonds, cashews & raisins)

Peel the bananas & dice them.

Add the jaggery, coconut, peeled cardamom to a food processor/blender. Add couple of tablespoons of water & make a smooth paste.
Scoop them out on the diced bananas.

Throw in the chopped nuts, mix well & let it sit for 15-20 mins for the flavors to blend well.
Serve it cold or at room temperature & dig in!


  • Do not use over ripened bananas. 
  • The color of this dessert depends on the jaggery color. Use a lighter version of jaggery to get a lighter color. I have used the dark colored jaggery in this.
