Panna cotta - sounds complicated? Well I thought so too, but always wanted to try it out. When I saw the post in Edible Garden's page, I thought this is it. I have to try this now and here we are :). The recipe here has slight variations from the original recipe which is given in Edible Garden's blog.
1 cup of cream - the one I used was thick cream, the original recipe calls for any cream which can be poured.
1 cup of milk
1/3 cup of sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
3 tsp of gelatin
3 tbsp of boiling water
- Pour the cream and milk into a pan.
- Add the vanilla extract to this mixture and bring this mixture to boil.
- Add the sugar and mix well till sugar dissolves, simmer in low heat for 2-3 mins.
- Remove from heat, strain and keep aside.
- Bring 3 tbsp water to a boil and add the gelatin to it. Stir until well combined and clear.
- Pour the gelatin mixture into the milk/cream mixture.
Pour this mixture into small cups or pudding dishes. Grease the cups with little butter before pouring so that it is easier to remove it while serving.
Refrigerate for 6-8 hours or until set :).
1 cup of strawberries
2 tsp of sugar
1 tsp of lemon juice
- Blend the strawberries well.
- Filer the puree and discard any pieces it might have to get a smooth strawberry juice.
- Add the sugar to this and mix well along with lime juice.
- Place the above mixture into a vessel and simmer for 2-3 mins. Mix well and remove from heat.
- Refrigerate this along with the Panna cotta.
Once the panna cotta has set, over turn into a plate or serve in the same dishes. If you have difficulty in unmoulding, then insert a knife along the edges, placing a plate over the mould, and gently overturn it. Enjoy the sweet and sour , Panna cotta with strawberry coulis!!!
