Pannacotta with coconut and melon

Pannacotta simply means "Cooked cream" it is a dessert from Northern part of Italy.
This creamy dessert is made by cooking, cream, sugar, milk and agging gelatine for setting.
I can be serves with a coulli of fruits or beries, chocolate sauce, caramel sauce, well what ever you fancy ............
The end result is always great, you have this silk dessert which just slides down you throat while you eat them ;-)
And if you are a regular reader of my blog you will know that I am a passionate about this Italian dessert. They are easy to make and it always impress my guest for dinner.

Like the time I made this delicous Bluberry pannacotta, or when I made this delicous Espresso Pannacotta from Deeba's place Passionate about baking , or why not give a try with this

Espresso flavoured Milk chocolate one or the Orange pannacotta with caramalized oranges, or the Mango pannacotta which i tried from Meeta's place What's for Lunch Honey orthe one with balsamic berries now with all these variety of pannacotta you can understand how i love this easy to make delicous smooth silky Italian dessert.

I loved making this one ,especially when my guest were curious how i got the slanting effect , if you look to the step by step pictures you will see how i achieved thate beautiful look.

Serves: 6

Ingridients
1/2 l coconut milk ( used tinned ones)
60 gm sugar
3 gm gelatine leaves
1 cavaillon Melon
200 ml sweet white wine
6 glasses

Warm the coconut milk with the sugar don't let it boil.
Soak the gelatine leaves in cold water for five minutes and squeeze oout the water before you use them.
Tale the warm coconut milk and add the gelatine and mix well. Let the mixtue get a little bit cool.
Now take a empty egg box and place the glasses in a slanting way and pout the coconut mixture so you will get the slanted effect. Place them carfully in the fridge for atleast 2 hours till it is set.

Cut the melon , remove the seeds and scoop the fruit out.
Mix the fruit pieces with the sweet wine with a mixer and keep them also in the fridge for cooling.
Before you serve just pour the mixes melon mix on to the pannacotta and serve it .

Last pic is the one I like the most. Looks like a great combo of the melon and coconut. Can I make it without the wine?

Cilantro, sure you can make without the the wine, maybe then you should add a bit of suagar syrup otherwise the pilp might be too thick.
