Pana Cotta

Here is an easy peasy Pana Cotta recipe to sweeten your sweet cravings. As the days are getting warmer this is a perfect dessert for all the busy-bees who doesn't want to compromise on taste.

1  (3  oz)  package  strawberry  jello( or you can use plain gelatin and instead of water mix it with fruit juice of your choice
1/3  cup  heavy  cream
2/3  cup  plain  yogurt
3  tablespoons  sugar
1  teaspoon  unflavored  gelatin
1/4  teaspoon  clear  vanilla  extract

  Make  a  strawberry  jello  according  to  package  directions.  we  used  only half a  package.  Instead  of  2  cups,  I  made  1  cup  jello.  (Add  1/2  cup  boiling  water  to  1/2  package  gelatin  mix. Stir  2  minutes  or  until  dissolved,  stir  in  1/2  cup  cold  water.)   Fill  champagne  glasses  1/2  full  with  jello.  Refrigerate  for  2  hours  or  until  jello  is  set.
To make Panna cotta
Dissolve  1/2  teaspoon  unflavored  gelatin  in  3  teaspoons  water,  for  2  minutes  and  heat  in microwave  2  to  5  seconds.Heat  heavy  cream  and  sugar   on  low  heat  do not boil.  Add  warm gelatin  mixture  to  heavy  cream,  stir.
Stir  in  2/3  cup  yogurt  and  vanilla  extract,  mix  well  and  strain through a  fine  sieve.  let  cool.
Carefully  spoon  the  panna  cotta  over  strawberry  jello  in  each  glass. Refrigerate  glasses  until  panna  cotta  is  set,  for  about  1  hour  or  more.

I had been so busy lately that I didn't find time to update the blog for the past few weeks. Here is sweet dish from my drafts, which is an ideal one for you if you have some excess milk that needs to be used up.

Whole Milk-4 cup
Sugar- 1/3 cup
Cashew nut-3 tbs
Cashew nut powder- 1 tbs
Almond Sliced-3tbs
Nutmeg powder-1/4 tsp
Cardamom-5 powdered
Saffron-1/2 tsp
Boil milk and when it starts to boil reduce the heat to low and add chopped or sliced cashew nuts and almonds along with saffron and nutmeg. Cook this at low heat stirring every other minute till the milk is reduced to one third. Once its reduced to one third of the original quantity add the powdered cashew along with sugar and cardamom. Stir well till well combined and cook for 3 more minutes. Refrigerate and have it cold.
