Two post in a week , this is a real progress for me. i love love cooking and that was a reason for me to start a food blog of my own where in i can document my tries and tested recipes. But somewhere along the way life took over and i forgot my blog. Planning to post reguraly from now on . I have joined some baking groups on Facebook where in we all cook a particular dish for a month with a twist of our own and Groovy Gourmets is one of them. This months Challenge was Pannacotta and i prepared it a mango version.
Panna cotta is one of the easiest yet elegant desserts from Italy and it consist of very less ingredients as well. I have used agar agar to set these and cant wait to try out different flovours with strawberry and coffee being top on my list.
