Vanilla & Chocolate Pannacotta

Pannacotta is a famous Italian dessert prepared with cream,milk,sugar and along with gelatin or agar agar (a vegetarian gelling agent). This Italian dessert tastes fantabulous when the weather is too hot as they are usually served chilled.Today am sharing a chocolate and a classic vanilla pannacotta prepared with Madagascar vanilla pods which i recently got through a friend who came back from Madagascar island. Obviously vanilla panna cotta prepared with Madagascar vanilla pods seriously makes a huge difference, tastewise they are just unbeatable and absolutely delicious.However my favourite is always chocolate flavoured one,yes i love chocolate pannacotta very much.For a light version of this pannacotta, you can use low fat milk and low fat cream,which tastes truly delicious too.

Pannacotta is an another dessert suggested by Preeti of Simply Tadka for this month's Sweet Fantasy Club where we can learn many sweets and desserts.Do you love to learn making sweets at home, then you should join this group.

1cup Full fat milk
1+1/2cup Low fat cream
1/4cup Sugar
1/2no Vanilla pod and 1/4cup Chocolate chips
1tbsp Agar agar powder
Few sugar pearls for decorating

Split the vanilla pod and remove the vanilla seeds.

Heat together the milk,vanilla seeds,cream and sugar in a vessel.

Whisk everything well until the sugar gets well dissolved, immediately add the agar agar powder to the hot milk-cream mixture,mix well and put off the stove.

Pour this mixture in ramekins or small moulds, keep aside until the mixture gets cool.

Cover them with aluminium foil and arrange in fridge atleast for an hour.

Repeat the same process of chocolate pannacotta but without the vanilla pod.

Serve chilled pannacotta after a heavy lunch or dinner as dessert.
