Pannacotta (from Italian cooked cream)

August  26, 2014

Pannacotta (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. It is generally believed to have originated in the Northern Italian region of Piedmont, although it is eaten all over Italy, where it is served with wild berries, caramel, chocolate sauce, or fruit coulis. Pannacotta is an unbaked, eggless custard which tastes superb. The texture is very smooth and silky and does not feel rich at all. This is eggless it does not set hard, but is delicate and wobbly. Usually pannacotta is best served in individual molds or cups. Serve them in the bowls themselves because it looses shape while transferring onto the serving plate. This recipe is so simple, that it was done in a few minutes. 

1/2 cup Milk
1 cups fresh Cream (Amul fresh Cream)
1/4 cup Sugar
1.1/2 tsp Gelatin (Soak it in a Tablespoon of warm water)
1/2 tsp Vanilla essence

For decoration
Chocolate sauce
Melon balls

Boil the milk, cream, sugar and vanilla in a small sauce pan. Once it comes to a boil switch off the gas, add the gelatine and stir until it has completely dissolved.

Divide the pannacotta mix into small pudding moulds and allow to set in the fridge. When set drizzel some chocolate sauce.  I also decorated one with a melon balls.

Notes: Wet a mold with cold water and drain out any excess water, pour the warm pannacotta mixture into the mold. This usually helps in the easy release.

    BTW after noticing this recipe filed under vegetarian, I just liked to mention that gelatin is not vegetarian / vegan. I am assuming that you are a vegetarian after looking at your recipe index. If not, I apologize. Hope I didn't offend you. .
