ABOUT Cardamom Panna Cotta with Pomegranate Reduction RECIPE

No bake Italian dessert with cream and milk called Panna cotta which 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. So here is my take on this classic Panacotta recipe which I had made for my family who are close to my heart with Cardamom flavour and with Pomegranate reduction.

Ingredients Serving: 4

  1. For The cardamom Panna Cotta:
  2. 200 ml Amul cream
  3. 200 ml Full fat milk
  4. ½ cup sugar
  5. 1 teaspoon cardamom powder
  6. 2 teaspoon Gelatin
  7. 2 tablespoon Cold water
  8. For The pomegranate reduction:
  9. Seeds of half a pomegranate
  10. 2 teaspoon cornflour
  11. ¼ cup water
  12. sugar to taste
  13. For Garnishing:
  14. 2 to 3 mint leaves
  15. Few pomegranate seeds


  1. In a small bowl, place the gelatin and pour the water over it. Let rest for about 20 mins. The gelatin will turn into jelly like mixture.
  2. In a pan, combine cream, milk and sugar and bring to a rolling boil, stirring in between. Do this on a medium flame. Once it starts boiling over, add the cardamom powder and mix again.
  3. Once done, take about 2 tbsp of this mixture and add to the gelatin and mix well.
  4. Add this immediately to the hot milk mixture and combine well using a balloon whisk.
  5. Let it cool down a bit. Pour into ramekins or any other glass bowl and let it set in the refrigerator for a minimum of 4 hours or overnight.
  6. To make the Pomegranate reduction: Cut the pomegranates in half. Place a fine mesh sieve over a large bowl. Using your fingers, scrape the seeds into the sieve.
  7. With the back of a wooden spoon ,press on the seeds to extract the juice. Discard the seeds and set the juice aside.
  8. In a medium saucepan, mix the cornstarch with the sugar. Slowly stir in the pomegranate juice and mix well.
  9. Cook this over medium heat, stirring constantly, until the mix begins to thicken and darkens to a deep wine color, and the mix coats the back of the spoon. Remove from the heat and let cool.
  10. Before serving the Panacotta, de mould it from the ramekin or glass bowl into the serving plate.
  11. Pour the Pomegranate reduction on it, Place some pomegranate seeds and mint leaves on top and serve immediately.
