Vanilla Pannacotta with Strawberry Topping

Pannacotta is an Italian dessert which means 'cooked cream'.It is made by simmering cream,milk ,sugar and gelatin and is set in the refrigerator.I had prepared this dessert for my son's birthday party last month.I had prepared a large batch and it was very mildly sweet with the amount of sugar mentioned.Though I checked the sweetness before set, the mixture may taste sweet but once refrigerated to set the sweetness may reduce.So,add slightly more than required.I topped it with strawberry topping,this added a sweet tangy flavor.This dessert can be made in advance a day ahead before the party and can be set.Hope u'llall enjoy making this at home!!!


Ingredients
heavy whipping cream 2 1/4 cup
milk ,cold1/4 cup
vanilla extract 1tsp
confectioners sugar/icing sugar 1/2 cup(See notes below)
gelatin ,unflavored 1pkt(1/4 oz/7g)
for topping 
strawberries 150 gm
water 1tbsp
sugar 1/8 cup
corn starch 1-2tsp




Method
  • Sprinkle the gelatin over the cold milk and let it stand for 5-10 mins.It will become spongy,swollen.
  • Combine the cream and sugar without lumps and heat on medium flame until it just reaches to a boil.When the cream is very hot,remove from flame and stir the spongy gelatin mixture.Combine well until the gelain is dissolved.If not dissolved,return to flame on low heat and keep stirring until there are no solid gelatin particles.Strain in a separate bowl to remove any undissolved gelatin.
  • Stir in the vanilla extract and mix well.Pour into individual serving cups,or layer with another flavor and set in the refrigerator for 4hours.
  • Prepare the topping-Wash,hull and slice the strawberrries.Combine the sugar,water and strawberries,simmer over low heat and then put off flame.Cool it down and blend it in a blender to a smooth sauce and then strain to remove the small seeds.Mix a tbsp of water & the corn starch without lumps.Add this to the strawberry sauce and put back on flame.Let it thicken,put off flame.
  • Top this mixture on top of the set vanilla pannacotta.Refrigerate until serving.
  • Enjoy with a topping or just like that !!

NOTES
* The amount of sugar should be slightly more than required when boiling so that the sweetness will be correct once set.And the amount mentioned yields a mildly sweet dessert so add according to your sweet tooth.
* You can have vanilla pannacotta with some fresh fruits rather than making the topping too.

Soumya: you can just pour it in the glass half way or slightly more and tilt it in the egg tray, holds well.. By the time the first layer sets in, you can add the second layer and get this effect :)
