Mango Panna Cotta with Keseriyan Sevai kheer – how does t sound?
yummy right .. and if you ask me how does it taste
my answer is “OUT OF THIS WORLD “
The Best fused dessert ever!!!
And easy as a PIE.
The story behind it:
It was a special weekend – YES my BIRTHDAY . As usual I had big plans to celebrate my birthday.. wanted to bake and decorate a cake for myself . But nothing ever goes as planned. I fell sick four days before my birthday and all the planning went down the drain. I was very upset. Thank God I was feeling a bit better on my birthday.
So thought cake nahi toh dessert hi sahi.
I didn’t wanna spend a lot of time in the kitchen on my birthday. The easiest that I could think of is kheer. My mom always made kheer for us on special occasions and we slurped it. So I thought why not make it too.
But there was one more problem , I have been craving panna cottas for quiet some time now . We don’t eat them at restaurants because of added gelatin. I always fancy panna cottas – oh!! They look so pretty . The way they are layered- quiet impressive . I just feel like digging right in. I was so confused what to make – panna cotta or kheer .. hmmmm
So what to do now…..
Gave it a thought and just went for it. I was so nervous because I had no clue how will the duo taste. Sometimes experimenting leads to bummers and that is the last thing I wanted on my birthday. But had to give it a shot, and hence comes this heavenly fusion.
Mouth melting mango panna cotta with nutty and creamy kheer ..aaah heaven !!! The duo was ready in less than an hour.. Chilled for an hour and served.
vegetarian – no gelatin
quick and easy
melt in mouth
fusion at its best

The panna cotta will set when it cools down .

Top it with prepared kheer or any other complimenting dessert before serving .
Heat a heavy bottom nonstick saucepan
Roast the vermecelli on low heat for 2 mins
Simultaneously warm milk in microwave ( I do it to expedite the process) or use hot milk
Once the sevai have browned a bit add the milk to the sevaiyan.
Cook on medium heat. Let it come to a boil . Stir occasionally until reduced to half the quantity .
Once it's come to a boil add condensed milk and salt and kesar. Cook for about 20 mins .
Consistency should be thick buttermilk like as it will thicken more after cooling .
Add cardamom powder and fold in nuts - cook for 10 mins more.
Taste test .Done.
Cool it till luke warm then transfer in the fridge to chill .
Store bought mango puree or any other fruit puree can be used.
I have used condensed milk in panna cotta because the mangoes I used werent sweet enough. You can skip it or substitute with 1/4 cup sugar depending on the sweetness of the mangoes.
You can play around with the panna cotta look- set it horizontally too.
Agar agar is also know as china grass and is easily available in leading grocery stores, asian food stores and online.
If using Agar Agar flakes then use 1 tablespoon flakes.
