Panna cotta (from Italian cooked cream) is an Italian dessert made by simmering together cream, milk and sugar, mixing this with gelatin, and letting it cool until set. I decided to give it a Indian twist by making a mango layer flavoured with aromatic green cardamoms. The golden mangoes were the perfect touch for everything that summers represent; bright, sunny and beautiful! The top cream layer is laced with vanilla and i made it a point to make it not overly sweet so that the taste of vanilla gets lost with sugar overload! I made it a vegetarian version by using Agar Agar in place of gelatine. The success of this Mango Panna Cotta lies in its texture. It shouldn’t be too firm or too smooth but have custard like creamy texture and should easily melt in your mouth. :) When you gently tap on them, they should wobble like a set jelly. Follow the recipe to T and you will find this recipe for Mango Panna Cotta to be ridiculously simple to make and sure to win many hearts for its look, taste and flavours!
