Mango Pannacotta



When Mangoes are in season, it cannot be a coincidence that I am posting second Mango recipe in a week. My favorite childhood fruit and still is, Mangoes, are so versatile. However, if it wasnt't for the awesome bake along by this wonderful group, Fondbites in which I joined recently, where every week the admin posts wonderful step by step recipe, I would not have given this recipe a try.


 A Panna-cotta recipe always caught my attention, but never got an opportunity to try them. The dessert turned out to be super delicious and was incredibly easy to make too. The Mangoes gave a nice lift in taste to this dessert. After all, anything made of Mangoes is impossible to go wrong.


Ingredients:
  • Mangoes – 2 Big & RipeFresh 
  • Cream – 600 ml
  • Coconut Milk – 400 ml
  • Sugar – 1 cup
  • Vanilla Extract – 1 teaspoon
  • Gelatin – 2 tablespoon
  • Warm water – 1/4 cup

Jelly Top -
  • Mangoes – 1 ripe
  • Sugar  1/3 cup
  • Water – 1/2 cup
  • Gelatin  1 tablespoon
  • Water – 2 tablespoon

Method:

  •  Remove skin of mangoes. Slice them into medium sized pieces.
  •  Process mangoes in your food processor.
  • Mix together fresh cream, coconut milk, sugar and vanilla extract. Bring it on medium flame and let it come to a boil. Keep stirring.
  • Mix together gelatin and water and let it soak for about 1 minute.
  •  Microwave or double boil the gelatin mixture and melt the gelatin completely.
  •  Add mango puree into the cream mixture that is heating up. Stir and mix well. ( I liked the texture of mangoes into my dessert. So when it didnt mix completely I was pretty much happy. If you want your cream to be silky and super smooth, you can add coconut milk to the mango slices while processing in your food processor and make it a shake and add it into the cream mixture that is heating up)
  • Mix the mango puree well and also add the gelatin that is melted and hot into the liquid mixture. Stir well and remove from fire.
  • Now pour the mixture into dessert cups and set in freezer for about an hour.

Jelly -
  • Process mango slices, sugar and 1/2 cup of water in food processor. Soak gelatin in 2 tablespoons of water and melt in microwave / double boiler and add it to the processed mango puree.
  • Mix well until completely combined. Pour 2 tablespoons of this jelly mixture on top of the panna cotta that has been set in the freezer. Set it back again in freezer for 30 minutes and transfer the set dessert into the refrigerator until you want to serve it.
