Panna cotta is a very popular Italian dessert served in every restaurant in Italy. Vanilla panna cotta is the most popular of all. Here I am giving it a twist by using fresh mango puree to make mango panna cotta. This is one of my favourite dessert to serve in the is season of mangoes. In this mango panna cotta, I prefer alphonso mangoes as they are very vibrant in colour and does not have any fibre.
In this recipe I will show you how to make mango panna cotta recipe at home. Mango panna cotta is also known as mango pudding. This mango panna cotta is very easy and quick recipe. It involves very less ingredients which are easy to remember. We obviously need mangoes for first layer, then heavy cream or whipping cream and milk for the second layer and gelatin or agar agar for setting it, thats it.
In this mango cotta recipe, I have used gelatin, but if you are a vegetarian you can use agar agar powder. The ratio of both agar agar and gelatin is same. Also the process is same if you use agar agar powder.
Last year I made strawberry panna cotta which was so refreshing so I thought why not make mango panna cotta in the season of mangoes.
Check out strawberry panna cotta recipe here.
This recipe requires 8 hours for setting the panna cotta as we are using 2 different layers. To save time you can also use only one layer of mangoes. If you are using two layers, always add the second layer only when the first layer is totally set.
Same when you are adding the fresh mangoes on top of the cream layer, make sure its fully set.
