Mango Pannacotta & Happy Easter !!

Panna cotta is one of the easiest yet elegant desserts from Italy. A friend introduced this delightful dessert while I visited her and I have been hooked thereon. Let's call it a case of 'love at first taste.'  I have improvised the dish to make it my own.  A blend of milk cream and mangoes the taste cannot go wrong.   I assure you, you'll love it and so your guests who will go ga! ga!



Ingredients:

Mango Puree- 1/2 cup
Heavy cream- 1 cup
Sugar- 1/2 cup/ to your liking
Milk/half n half- 1 cup
Unflavored Gelatin- 1 packet
Water- 4Tbsp
Pure vanilla extract- 1 tsp
Pistachios/Walnuts- for garnishing



Method:

1.Divide the puree equally among 4-5 serving glasses and freeze it.Take the water in a bowl and sprinkle gelatin over it and let it bloom.
2.Meanwhile mix the heavy cream ,milk and sugar in a pan and heat it while stirring.
3.you must heat it till all the sugar is dissolved and switch off the heat when it is about to boil.
4.Mix the vanilla extract and mix well.
5.Now add and mix the gelatin until it is completely dissolved.
6.Let the mixture come down to room temperature and pour it over the frozen mango.
7.Allow to set it in a refrigerator for 2-3 hours and serve after sprinkling pistachios on top.

Notes:

1.I used store bought mango pulp for making this.
2.Vegans could replace gelatin with cornstarch.You may have to use 1 to 1 1/2 tsp for the above quantity.But you will have to set the pannacotta in the serving dishes, since it will not retain the shape if you demould it.

Easter eggs

  Easter Sunday is around the corner and we decided to have some fun at home.   It was absolute fun.  My little imp enjoyed it so much he was rolling with laughter every time he beat his sister to find an egg.  He found 3 eggs. Guess what he did when he found the first one! He ate it! I encouraged him to go find more but he did not budge until he had one down in his stomach.  His sister and I had a good laugh but nothing deterred him.  But as soon as he had a fill of one egg he was out and about looking for more.  Hope you have a good time too over the extended weekend.



Happy Easter Everyone !!
