A simple and perfect dessert to celebrate this wonderful day with loved ones. It is one of our favorite dessert too. I love this dessert because its so easy to make, silk and smooth texture melts in your mouth at the end of the meal. We had this with mixed fruits.

Panna cotta a lovely creamy Italian dessert made by simmering together cream, milk, sugar mixing with gelatin and letting it cool until set. It literally means "cooked cream" in Italian. It is served with berries sauces, chocolate sauce, mixed fruits and so on. I made the hearts with chocolate panna cotta.

Ok coming to the recipe part..only few ingredients to make mouthwatering dessert.

Ingredients :

Heavy cream - 250 ml
Gelatin - 1/2 tbsp
Sugar - 25 gm
Vanilla essence - 1 tsp

For Chocolate Panna Cotta:

I used 60% bitter Sweet chocolate chips - 50 gms

Method :

1. Mix gelatin with tbsp of cold water and keep aside.
2. Now heat the heavy cream together with vanilla essence.
3. Just simmer for few minute do not let it to boil.
4. Remove from heat and add sugar mix until sugar dissolves.
5. Now add the gelatin and let it dissolves too.
6. Now strain the mixture and pour in required moulds and let it set overnight or at least 3 to 4 hours.
7. For making chocolate panna cotta after step 5 pour the hot cream to the chocolate chips and whisk until everything is mixed. Pour in require mold.
8. Serve with your favorite dressings.......


1. If using the small moulds for the panna cotta its bit difficult to unmould it. Run the knife along the edges to loosen, carefully unmould it and set in the fridge again.  

I served with berry coulis so I used less sweet,  you can increase the sweet by tasting the liquid cream before you set the Panna cotta.

Enjoy !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Usli tastes different to sundal dear..sundal is just a seasoning added to the cooked beans ..where as in usli the flavors of garlic is predominent and it is done in a slightly different process and is a good sabzi for chapathy's.More over Usli is made up of avarekallu which tastes the best version of usli...
