Mango Panna Cotta | Italian dessert
Written by Jayashree
Published on May 29, 2020

Mango Panna Cotta is a quick Italian dessert, ideal to serve anytime. It is a vegetarian version as agar agar  (or agar )is used here.

Panna Cotta is a classic Italian dessert  that is made by cooking heavy cream. Addition of mango makes a subtle change to the taste and hence the name as Mango Panna Cotta. This is a vegetarian version of the dessert.

I wanted to make this panna cotta since a long time but somehow it was delayed. Now, I have made it with mangoes as it is the season of king of fruits. Looking at the internet, I figured there were many ways to make this classic dessert. Soon, I decided that it would be vegetarian with the easy way that I could make. The final outcome was good but I think I could add some more mango pulp as the colour is cream. But, on other thoughts, had I added it, I would need more of agar agar to set it properly. Anyway, here is the recipe of my mango panna cotta.

A few other mango recipes, as breakfast  you might like to try mango kesari, or amba bhat for lunch along with chapati and sabzi. If you like to explore other cuisines then do check this mumbazha pulissery, a dish from the state of kerala or the ambua from Himachal Pradesh.

About Agar Agar

Agar Agar or Agar  is a vegetarian substitute that is used instead of gelatine in making desserts. It is a jelly-like substance obtained from red algae. It is a mixture of two substances namely: agarose and agaropectin. It is mainly used in desserts and in soups as a thickening agent. As it is a rich source of dietary fibre, it can also be used as a laxative.

It is available as white translucent strands. I read that the powder form is also available but I have not found it yet. It needs to be cooked in a little water until the strands dissolve.

About the event :

I am sending this to 87 HWCG where the theme is ” Cool Desserts”. The theme is suggested by Vanita Bhat who is a good cook and photographer. I loved her Alsande Batata Sukke Sabzi, would love to try it sometime. Here are the other desserts  by co-bloggers :

      You can use fresh cream but whip it well. I have used 200 ml tetra pack of cream here. Thankyou.

    My take is that if you add more mango puree just for the right colour, then you are comprising on the really nice creamy texture. The panna cotta looks so inviting and love it.
