Strawberry Pannacotta

Pannacotta is a traditional, easy, simple, delicious and creamy Italian Custard prepared by simmering milk, cream with sugar....after trying out many sort of pannacotta, i tried out this strawberry pannacotta with fresh strawberry chunks...We just loved this flavourful strawberry pannacotta and really relished each and every spoon...Pannacotta is eaten all over Italy where it is served with wild berries, caramel, chocolate sauce or fruit coulis.Its peak season for berries and i really enjoying making out few desserts with summer fruits, strawberry pannacotta is one among those desserts..


1cup Low Fat Cream
1cup Full Fat Milk
1/4cup Sugar
2tbsp Gelatin Powder
5nos Strawberries (chopped)
1cup Strawberry puree
Strawberry chunks (for garnishing)

Heat both milk n cream with sugar in a heavy bottomed pan.. whisk everything well...now add the gelatin powder directly to the hot milk-cream n whisk well until they get well mixed, put off the stove and keep aside..Add the freshly grounded strawberry puree and chopped strawberry pieces to luke warm milk-gelatin mixture..

Pour this creamy strawberry mixture to small ramequins r small moulds ....let them get cool..cover them with aluminium foil n arrange them in fridge, dont disturb them for atleast 2 hours..

Just take off the panna cotta with a knife edge, arrange some strawberry chunks over the pannacotta...serve them... Enjoy!!!!!

For those who are looking for a gelatin substitute, you can get it in any of natural or whole food stores which carry a vegan/vegetarian section. Its called Agar Agar. I was going crazy searching for it in chinese/Asian grocery stores but couldn't get it. Luckily got it from a natural/whole foods store today (as a gift). I am on my way to try out the Apricot pannacotta :-)
