Description

Smooth, cold and luxuriantly creamy this panna cotta has squeezed the taste of Asia into it along with the perfect panna cotta ‘wobble’.


Ingredients

panna cotta

  • 6 x 5 fl oz (150 ml) dariole moulds
  • 2 cups (500 ml) coconut cream – we used Ayam brand
  • 1 1/2 cups whipping cream (375 ml thickened cream)
  • 1/4 cup (55 g) white sugar
  • 8 kaffir lime leaves very finely sliced
  • 3 x 2-gram gold-strength gelatine leaves 

lime syrup

  • 1/2 cup (125ml) water
  • 110 g  (1/2 cup) white sugar
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • zest of 1 lime finely grated
  • Fresh red papaya and passionfruit to serve

Instructions

panna cotta

  • In a saucepan combine coconut cream, cream, sugar & kaffir lime leaves and bring to a gentle simmer (not boiling)
  • Remove pan from heat & set aside for 30 minutes to allow flavours to infuse.
  • Return pan to heat and bring to a gentle simmer, then remove the pan from heat and strain kaffir leaves then discard leaves – set aside.
  • Meanwhile, add gelatine sheets to a bowl of cold water to soften for around 3 to 4 minutes – see photos above
  • Squeeze gelatine sheets till excess water is removed.
  • Whisk gelatine sheets into panna cotta
  • Strain mixture and pour into moulds
  • Refrigerate for around 4 hours or until set
  • Dip the mould into a bowl of hot water for 3 or 4  seconds and then turn onto a plate. If panna cotta is not releasing run a small sharp knife around the edge being careful not to slice into the panna cotta

lime syrup

  • Add sugar and water to a small pan over medium heat and stir until sugar dissolves.
  • Allow to cool and add zest and lime juice
  • Serve with chopped red papaya and passionfruit.

Notes

  • Gelatine should always be softened (bloomed) in cold water. Hot water causes the exterior of the gelatine to swell and will prevent the gelatine setting.
  • Freshly sliced mango, lychees or banana would be a great alternative to serve with panna cotta.
  • Kaffir lime leaves appear to be two leaves joined together – this is classed as 1 leaf. We used 8 of these double leaves
