If you are looking for a quick and no fuss yet delicious dessert, then this Amba Rasayan Recipe | Easy Mango Dessert is the one you should be making!

Mangoes are still in season here and my kiddo loves this fruit! We usually have a couple of these around and she likes to enjoy it as such.

While I am not a huge fan of Mangoes, I have a terrible weakness for cookbooks.I love hoarding books and cookbooks occupy a nice little cupboard on the stairway.


As much as I hoard cookbooks, I rarely cook from them. I used to pick up an interesting dish and add my own twists and turns and serve it to my folks. But then after a while the enthusiasm waned but my interest in collecting cookbooks just kept growing.

Then a double opportunity knocked my door.Two events that required a dish cooked from a cookbook came my way and I happily grabbed the challenge!

At last, I can dust off those cook books once again and cook a couple of dishes from each of them.

I gathered a dozen of my cookbooks and asked my kids to choose the dishes that they want to taste .Together we have compiled a list. All of them will be showcased here -one recipe a week. Once that list is exhaused I will pick up the next dozen or so books to cook from.

So,here is the first one- Amba Rasayan Recipe | Easy Mango Dessert that takes just 5 minutes to prepare but sure to stay in your hearts for a long, long time!

This is from Sanjeev Kapoor’s Kitchen Collection- Sweets and Desserts.

  1. That’s an interesting recipe PJ. I remember reading about this while researching the Maharashtrian cuisine. It is surely a fantastic way to enjoy Mangoes. I can’t believe you are not a big fan!..what’s the other event you mentioned? And thanks for joining us for the CCC..hope we cook more from cookbooks going fwd!

  2. Hi PJ, how are you? long time, we did not get a chance to visit each other. It was long before we were so regular with the events. Thanks to Valli to make us move ahead.
    Same pinch for collecting the books and writing down the recipes from others. I had 4 big books, which was gifted by my friend, She had collected all the recipes from Gulf magazine and neatly binded into a book. But, when we moved back to India, my husband gave it to someone, thinking that they are heavy to carry. I really miss those recipes from all over the world.
    Thank you for visiting my blog and really appreciate your comments.
    Coconut milk is the great base for many dishes. and mango is the best among all those I feel. I too love mangoes and keep trying the dishes using mango. I am bookmarking this sweet to make it whenever I get fresh mango.
    And hey, I can’t take the risk of telling my kids to make a list of the recipes they want from the books. 🙂 \
    Keep in touch.
