Fresh Pomegranate Pannacotta

Who said too much of Desserts are bad . Absolutely not . These pomegranate pannacotta are made using freshly made pomegranate juice. 

The other day when i went to the market i found these jumbo pomegranates for 1.50$ each which was worth buying . They were blood red inside and with good amount of sweet  . So i didn't add much sugar or artificial color in the dessert.

 These kinds of desserts are indeed simple , healthy , nutritious . 

Ingredients :

Pomegranate - 1
Water - 1/4 Cup
Sugar - depending on the sweetness
Gelatin - 1/2 Packet
Heavy Cream - 2 Cup


  • Cut , the pomegranate and remove the seeds carefully .
  • Put the seeds in the blender and blend it really well , till the seeds are crushed completely. Keep few seeds to garnish .
  • Strain it using muslin cloth / or strain it thrice with the strainer. ( Just to make sure there is no tiny pieces of seeds).
  • In a bowl mix gelatin and water . Set it aside . Allow gelatin to bloom . It approximately takes 5 minutes.
  • Place the cream in a saucepan . Bring it to boil . Add the gelatin mixture and dissolve it .
  • Lastly off the stove and ad the pomegranate juice . Check the sugar , add the amount you want . Mix it well to make sure sugar is dissolved completely . ( I did not want to boil the pomegranate juice with the cream , it might spoil the original taste of pomegranate ) .
  • Divide and pour it in the ramekins or dessert bowls . Cover it with Cling Wrap . 
  • Refrigerate it overnight or till it sets .

Are you guys wondering where is the recipe for jelly . This is actually 2 in 1 recipe. If you had noticed the ingredients , i didn't use milk , i just added water . Because of this ,  it creates Panna Cotta on top and  jelly below it . ( I had removed the Panna Cotta from the dessert bowl , so u  are seeing it reverse ).

Isn't it cool ??? Anything made fresh always taste delicious .
