Honey Vanilla Panna Cotta with Mango


We got a box of mangoes and I wanted to try out something new out of it. Then I remembered the Panna Cotta which I had bookmarked. Opened my bookmark manager and sat stunned for a while. Did I bookmark these many recipes? I never bothered to open and try out the bookmarked ones. Ok… Now let me start clearing out the bookmarks. Not by just deleting it, but by trying it out.

It was quite difficult for me to find out the Panna Cotta and just because I remembered that it was from Nisha’s ‘Look who is cooking too’, I directly dropped in there and searched this out. I made a slight modification on the original recipe just coz I was running out of whipped cream, still could come out with the great dessert.

Sat down for another 2 hrs and organized my bookmarks J






Ingredients – Bottom Layer - Panna Cotta:

Whipping Cream                   --    150 ml (5 oz)
Whole Milk                             --    50 ml (2 oz)
Sugar                                      --    3 tbsp
Vanilla Extract                       --    1 tsp
Honey                                     --    2 tbsp
Gelatin powder                      --    2 gms
 
Ingredients – Top Layer - Mango:

Mango                                     --    1
Whole Milk                             --    120 ml (½ cup)
Butter                                     --    1 tbsp
Sugar                                      --    2 ½ tbsp
Gelatin powder                      --    2 gms
 
Preparation of Panna Cotta:

Mix the whipping cream and milk in a saucepan. Add the vanilla extract and sugar and on low heat, stir continuously till the sugar dissolves. Add the honey, mix well.

Take it off the heat and add the gelatin powder. Stir well, till it completely melts and no lumps are seen.

Strain the mixture and keep aside to cool.

 


Have your serving glasses ready. Once the liquid mixture has cooled, pour them into the serving glasses. I just wanted to have them slightly slanting and did keep my glasses in a slanting position. I used some paper clips inside small plastic bowls and kept the glasses above it.

 

Chill it in the refrigerator for a minimum of 1 hr.

Peel and cut the mango into pieces. Blend them in a mixer by adding half of the milk and sugar.


Add melted butter to the remaining milk. Use a whisk and mix it well. It wouldn’t be a proper replacement for whipped cream, but just mix them well.

Slightly heat the mango puree in a sauce pan. Take off the fire and add gelatin and stir till it dissolves. Strain the mixture and then add the milk – butter mixture. Mix well.

Take the serving glasses out of the refrigerator and gently pour this mango mixture on top of the set vanilla panna cotta.


Chill overnight. Garnish when serving.
