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.
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
Few crushed ice cubes — Can add either while blending or while serving
 Peel the skin of the Mangoes using a small knife or scrapper.
 Remove the pulp( fruit part) into a mixer jar or blender.
 To this add sugar, milk and cardamom mix and blend it for 5 minutes.
Serving ideas and variations :-
- For Milkshake: Serve in tall glasses as a milkshake by dropping few crushed ice cubes at the top.
- For specifically seekaraNe:
** Serve with Poori or Chapathi for kids if kids doesnt like with other side dishes.
** For guests we can serve Poori with Mango Rasa and any side dish which tastes great. For this while blending , can add 2 spoons fresh cream ( or Kene in kannada) which gets formed after milk boils, at our home, we usually serve this way.
