Subtly sweet with hints of citrus and vanilla, the panna cotta is set off beautifully by a organic honey saffron gelee`. It takes 20 mins to make and is an absolute show stopper.
My religion is simple. My religion is kindness.
With Diwali here, I have been stressed out and stretched to the limits. Managing things has taken on a new meaning completely and only I know how I am doing everything! If you are a woman, I am sure you already know what I am talking about. Much like the hydra, us women are blessed with the ability to think of 10 different things, do two things at one time and invariably fare better than our macho counterparts. No offence to the dudes. You just ain’t built the same. God just put extra effort into us is all I am saying 😛
So I was talking about religion right? For some reason religion has everyone in a tangle these days. Its a taboo subject! I fail to understand when and where we thought it a taboo to discuss religion. I am not talking the religion of politics or even Hindu vs Islam vs Christianity. Hell, as far as I am concerned, I am still searching. But this much I know, if it were up to me, I would preach one religion. The religion of kindness.
So anyways enough preaching. Let me quickly come to point here before I digress. I don’t want to talk anymore about Diwali or how pretty it is! I am sure you have been reading that in my last 3 (or is it 4?)posts! Nah. Let me talk to you about this spectacular dessert that is the organic vanilla lime pannacotta with honey saffron gelee. Pannacotta as I have often said is the simplest of desserts. Of all the things I am grateful to the Italians for (and I am looking at you my dear sweet bowl of spaghetti), pannacotta stands second in the list. As you all know by now, I am not too fond of going the usual ladoo for pooja route. With boundaries vanishing today, why limit your Diwali party options to the same old Indian dessert??
There is absolutely no reason for you to! With this incredible organic vanilla lime pannacotta with honey saffron gelee your party menu is set! It takes 20 mins to make, put overnight in the fridge and bring out for dinner on Diwali or just about any time you want to enjoy a super delicious dessert. Who wouldn’t love this?
I, have been working with 24 Mantra Organic for a while now and it’s been a blast working on this Organic Mantras Initiative. I love cooking with their products and we have got some brilliant recipes coming your way. So stay tuned to this segment and don’t forget to follow them on Facebook and Instagram.
Organic vanilla lime pannacotta with honey saffron gelee isn’t laden with copious amounts of ghee, butter or sugar.
Its just cooked cream topped with some honey gelee (or jelly). The flavor for something this simple is out of the world. People often think cooking simple food is really simple. Fact : The trouble with simple food is that there is much less wiggle room! If you do a mistake it is glaringly visible. The same holds true for organic vanilla lime pannacotta with honey saffron gelee.
The pannacotta is really simple. It is flavored with orange essence and vanilla and some lime in it, making it the perfect foil between the creamy panna cotta and the sweetness of the honey gelee. The honey gelee has saffron soaked water to give it a sublime aroma and a beautiful color. Served on Diwali in a festive platter it looks as good as edible gold!! So so pretty! And did I mention delicious??
I used the organic honey from 24 Mantra Organics to make this super delicious organic vanilla lime pannacotta with honey saffron gelee. The organic wild honey is so delicious that by itself it is perfect for the gelee, but when you add some pre soaked saffron to it, the aroma just takes the whole thing over the top. The orange essence in the pannacotta marries the lime and honey gelee perfectly and every bite becomes a smooth cooling sensation on your palate.
This is what I am serving for my Diwali bash along with my favorite 10 min no sugar pineapple sandesh and the butterscotch phirni! Indulgent desserts like these are a must have during festive occasions and soiree and I am sure your guests will love having spoon after spoon of this super silky, perfectly wobbly glass of organic vanilla lime pannacotta with honey saffron gelee. So make this edible gold and enjoy with your loved ones! As will I. I will see you guys after a break of 3-4 days as I give my family who’s come all the way to be with us my undivided attention. Coz that is what food and celebration is all about.
