Chocolate Panna Cotta
It feels like I have been away from this space for ages. I couldn't help being roped in for an event, in which I had to sing a couple of songs. Once in, it was practice, practice and more of it. Though I enjoy singing, I really missed the Blog and the opportunity to post new recipes. I think that's
- 300 ml Cream - (I used Amul fresh cream)
- 100 ml Milk
- 100 gms Dark chocolate chopped
- 80 gms Sugar
- 2 teaspoons Gelatin - (Vegetarians can use same quantity of agar-agar)
- 1/4 teaspoon Vanilla extract
Take 2 tablespoons of water in a bowl and sprinkle the gelatin on it .
Keep aside for 5-10 minutes for it to bloom.
Put the cream, milk and sugar in a pot and cook it on a slow fire until the mixture boils.
Remove from the fire and add the chopped chocolate and vanilla extract and stir well till the chocolate is melted completely.
Melt the gelatin in a double boiler till the gelatin dissolves.
Add the gelatin mixture to the chocolate mixture and stir till well blended.
Strain into moulds and refrigerate for approximately 2-4 hours.
Unmould and decorate to your taste.
For those using agar-agar, dissolve the agar-agar in 8 teaspoons of hot water and keep aside for 10 minutes.�Bring the mixture to a boil.�Simmer for a few minutes.�Mix well with the remaining warm ingredients.�Pour into moulds and refrigerate for setting.
