Mango Panna Cotta- A Summer Treat

14 June, 2013

Mango Panna Cotta- A Summer Treat

Mango is my favorite fruit and now in season. I haven't given much recipes with mango, so thought of serving fresh mangoes in this delicious way, by making Mango Panna Cotta. This is a perfect summer dessert and quite easy to prepare if you have the ingredients at hand. Panna cotta was on my to-do list for a very long time and I finally made it. Panna cotta can have many flavours- cherry, strawberry, blueberry, chocolate etc.(So, do make it and don't forget to comment or subscribe! Njoy!)

Mango Panna Cotta- A Summer Treat

Ingredients:

For panna cotta:
  • Fresh cream- 1 cup ( I used Amul ready-made cream)
  • Milk- 1 cup
  • Sugar- 1/2 cup/ 2 tbsp.
  • Vanilla essence- 1 tsp.
  • Gelatin- 2 tsp.
  • Water- 2-3 tbsp. (For melting the gelatin)

For mango gelee:
  • Mango puree- 2-3 mangoes (Approx. 1 1/2 cup)
  • Sugar- 2 1/2 tbsp. (according to the sweetness of mangoes)
  • Gelatin- 2 tsp.
  • Water- 2-3 tbsp. (For melting)

Method:

For panna cotta:
  1. Add gelatin to a small bowl containing the water (warm). Keep aside till the gelatin melts, becomes clear and there are no lumps. You can also melt the gelatin in the microwave for quicker results.
  2. Mix the milk and fresh cream in a stainless steel vessel and bring to a boil. Add sugar and simmer till it dissolves completely. Stir in between and turn off the heat. Add vanilla essence to the mixture.
  3. Add and mix the gelatin till it is completely dissolved. Let it come down to room temperature.
  4. Pour the mixture in serving glasses/bowls. Cover with plastic wraps and refrigerate for 2-4 hrs. or until it is set properly.
For mango gelee:
  1. Mix gelatin in cold water. Cut mango into small pieces and puree them in the blender.
  2. Add sugar to the mango puree and simmer till the sugar dissolves properly.
  3. Combine the gelatin and mango mixture until a smooth paste is formed and the gelatin has dissolved properly, without any lumps.
  4. Let it cool down and then pour over panna cotta layer. Allow it to set in the refrigerator for 3-5 hours. 
  5. Serve chilled. You can garnish with fruits or other toppings, or have it as it is.
