A take on a classical italian dessert- pana- milk , cotto is to cook so literally cooked milk, set with gelatine and creamy, this one is flavoured with sitafal, an amazing fruit from india, there is a caribbean relative called soursop, but sitafal is sweeter and creamier.
- cream- 500 ml
- milk- 500 ml
- sugar- 100 gm
- gelatine- 15-20 gms depending on which country you are making it in.
- water – to soak the gelatine- 50 ml
- sitafal puree/ pulp- 750 gms
- cardamom powder- large pinch
- Soak gelatine in water.
- Heat milk , add sugar and stir until dissolved.STOP HEATING NOW
- WHEN GELATINE IS ADDED IT HAS TO MELT BUT NOT COOK!!
- Add in the sitafal pulp and gelatine and whisk well. depending on how sweet the sitafal is you might need to slightly increase sugar quantity.
- Add in the cream now
- flavour with cardamom and allow to cool down. set in individual glass bowls of small plastic shot glasses like i did.i got about 20 x 60 ml ones..
- Chill for a minimum of 2 hours or overnight
- The photo below shows one i made with cardamom and garnished with “Nabat”-saffron rock candy and caramelised milk, +edible flowers
