mango panna cotta recipe

this famous italian dessert is hubby’s favorite dessert and i do make them occasionally. when the season of mangoes arrive, i make this variation of mango panna cotta with alphonso mangoes. i have been making the panna cotta for some years now. just that the recipes never got to the blog. along with this version, i also make strawberry panna cotta and the regular vanilla panna cotta.

panna cotta means “cooked cream” in italian. its a softly set pudding which is creamy yet firm. generally gelatin is used to set this pudding. panna cotta can be wholly made with cream or with a combination of cream, milk and fruits.

once set, the panna cotta should gently wobble. i have used 4 teaspoons of chopped agar agar strands which i felt set the panna cotta perfectly. i have used less amount of agar agar before and the panna cotta did not set well. you can even unmold the panna cotta easily, if you follow this recipe. use oiled bowls or ramekins so that the unmolding is easy.

the thickening & setting ingredient in this vegetarian mango panna cotta is agar agar and not gelatin. agar agar is also added in the flavored china grass that are available in the stores. agar agar strands and powder are available easily in indian metro cities. i have used agar agar in few more recipes like mango pudding, mango cheesecake and pomegranate mousse.

making panna cotta is easy. i have used alphonso mangoes to make the mango pulp. use any good quality sweet mangoes. just make sure they are not fibrous. for the cream, i used amul cream which is a low fat cream.

RECIPE TIPS

* both the agar agar solution and the cream mixture should be hot when you mix them. in case one of them cools or becomes warm :
- for agar agar - on cooling the agar agar sets and becomes gelatinous, so add some hot water and reheat them with continuous stirring. you can also use a hot water bath.
- for the cream mixture - gently reheat this mixture on a low flame till its hot.
