Strawberry Panna Cotta

DSCN4813
Whenever we had made a visit to Ice cream parlours, my boys had always preferred strawberry flavour the most. It is me who encourages them to try out other flavours also. Today i am in a mood to bring a smile on their faces by making Strawberry Panna Cotta, which is an Italian dessert made by blending thick cream and strawberry crush. It not only tastes divine but is a treat for your eyes too.Then i decided to follow Chef Sanjeev Kapoor’s recipe with a little twist here and there to add my own preferences. Panna Cotta should be considered one of the best party dishes for many reasons. The gelatine gives it a smooth mouth feel and a melt in the mouth texture. It is quick and easy to make and brings lots of compliments on your way.

Ingredients

Strawberry crush                             _ 1/2 cup

Fresh strawberries (chopped)         _ 4 (Optional)

Fresh cream                                    _ 2 cups

Milk                                                  _ I cup

Gelatine ( unflavoured                  _ 1 Tbsp

Sugar                                               _ 1/4 cup

Method ( Step by step)

1. Mix cream and milk and sugar in a pan and bring it to a boil.

2. Dissolve gelatine in a small cup of water and keep aside.

3.Transfer the boiled mixture to a bowl.

4. Add strawberry crush to the bowl and mix gently for a minute.

5.Add gelatine which is already soaked in water for few minutes by now to the mixture in the bowl. Mix it thoroughly with the mixture using a spoon or a beater.

6.Add the chopped strawberries to the mixture and mix it again.

7.Pour the mixture gently into small silicon moulds ( or simple glass bowls ) and refrigerate for 3 to 4 hours.

8. Once the panna cotta is set, you can place a plate on top of  the moulds and turn upside down to take it out.

9. Leave the mould in boiling water for 4 to 5 seconds so that the desert comes out easily from the mould.

10. Garnish with whole or chopped strawberries and fresh cream.  ENJOYYY!!!!
