Balehannu is a Kannada word for banana, and Rasayana means essence in Sanskrit. The banana rasayana is usually made during summer in South Canara households.

The banana rasayana recipe is our family's favorite dessert. We frequently prepare it at home and love to relish it as a side dish with neer dose, poori's, roti, phulkas, chapathi, plain dosa, obbattu, and even idiyappam. I would love to have this as a post-lunch/dinner dessert.
