Mango Pannacotta

Mango Panacotta: A layered mango pannacotta made with fresh mango puree and milk cream layer. Pannacotta is an Italian gelatin based dessert cooked with cream and flavored with different flavorings or fruits which are served after the main course as a chilled dessert.

I have always wanted to make pannacotta but never ever attempted before because of the animal based gelatin that is used in the recipe. But this time when my in-laws came to visit us in Florida I asked them to bring packets of china grass. As we do not get plant-based gelatin here in Ireland I knew that my china grass packet would be handy for me to use here. They brought two packets but sadly while packing for the shifting I had to throw one packet along with all of my props and many other favorite things. That was real weird, right??

Finally last week I tried making the pannacotta at home. We are still getting the mangoes but they are not as sweet as they should be and that’s why I had to add some sugar in the mango layer . But if your mangoes are ripe and sweet enough you do not have to add the sugar in the mango layer.This classic dessert is totally adored by my family and they have asked me to try it again with fresh mangoes when it’s season.
