Mango Panna Cotta

I never got to try Panna Cotta until last year when I came across this exotic creamy beautiful dessert.  As soon as I was home I had to look out for the recipe to recreate the speciality in my kitchhen. Got to know its an Italian dessert. I then remembered I had seen this recipe a few times on food network channel .... Giada's show long time back. Oh yes I used to love her shows

This dessert is super creamy. Made with cream and gelatin, it can be made in different flavours to win everyone's heart

Made it this summer to enjoy with the king of fruit flavour to get the perfect taste. I am totally in love with it

Serves... 10 ppl
Serve option... Chilled

This is what u'll need....

Cream - 1/2 cup
Milk - 1/2 cup
Mango - 1
Gelatin - 1 packet
Vanilla - 1/2 tspn
Sugar to taste

Here is the stir.....

  • Pour milk into a pan 
  • Add cream to it. I added fresh malai / homemade cream. It enhancer the flavour of the dessert
  • Whisk it for a few seconds
  • Pour the gelatin into the milk cream mixture. Stir it and let rest for 10 mins
  • After 10 mins put the pan on low flame and stir it till the gelatin dissolves completely. Make sure it dissolves properly else you will result in a grainy texture instead of a creamy, silky one
  • Add a few drops of vanilla essence
  • Add sugar to taste
  • Mix till the sugar dissolves. Turn off the flame
  • Cut the mangoes and scoop out the flesh into a blender jar
  • Grind it to a fine puree. You can add a few drops of food colour at this stage if you want. I feel its the taste that matters and not the colour so did not add any
  • Let the mixture cool down completely. Add mango puree into the milk-cream mixture
  • Give it one final stir to mix it all evenly
  • Pour it into moulds or small glasses and let it set in the refrigerator for 2-4 hours
  • Top it with a little tutti frutti to add some colour
  • Serve chilled and enjoy with your family 

  • Dont boil the mixture, ust make it warm till the sugar dissolves
  • The gelatin needs to rest for 10 mins to ease the task of dissolving
  • Adjust sugar depending on the sweetness of mangoes
