About Panna Cotta Recipe

Panna Cotta is an Italian dessert which includes use of Cream, egg whites and honey but outside Italy is little different and that is what I have done here. It is Eggless Panna Cotta. There could be so many variations of Panna Cotta but what I did was a very basic one.

Panna Cotta

Ingredients to make Panna Cotta

  • 1 cup full cream milk.
  • 200 ml cream. I used Amul cream.
  • 1 tablespoon Gelatin.
  • sugar would be as per taste.
  • cardamom Powder.
  • Vanilla Essence. This is optional as I did not use it.

How to make Panna Cotta

  1. Dissolved Gelatin in warm water and keep aside for 5 minutes. Ensure Gelatin is completely dissolved in water.
  2. While the Gelatin is resting, mix Milk, Sugar and cream in a pan and put it on simmer.
  3. Cook it on medium flame as you do not want it to come to a boil. Keep stirring.
  4. Add Vanilla essence and mix well.
  5. Once it starts to thicken a bit which would be about 5-8 minutes, take it off the heat. If you think it is thin, add some more cream and simmer for a little longer.
  6. Now add the Gelatin mix and mix well so that it is completely dissolved.
  7. Pour it in muffin cups or anything that you have as per the shape that you like. I used silicon muffin moulds as I wanted individual servings. If you have stainless steel moulds, it will be easy to demould. Also, slightly grease the moulds
  8. Let it set for 2-3 hours in refrigerator.
  9. Once set use a small knife and separate panna cotta from the moulds specially the upper sides. Do not dig the knife all the way down, just the upper part of the edges.
  10. Now put it upside down in the dish you want to serve. You would not be able to transfer it after that.
  11. Gently pull up the mould and your Panna Cotta will come out.
  12. Sprinkle some Cardamom powder on top of it for that added flavor.
