Coffee n White Chocolate Panna Cotta ( For Potluck Cyberstyle)

It is that day of the month again when we all blogger friends gather for a potluck party at Jagruti's Cooking Odyssey and I am quite excited about it.

 All of us make a dish of our choice and post it here on 10th for this virtual cyberstyle party . Today for this lovely event I heve made one of the most popular Italian dessert Coffee Panna Cotta for all my friends .

 Hope it is loved by all.



Ingredients for the white chocolate layer :

1 1/2 cups ....................heavy cream ( Used the brand Rich Cream)
3 tbsp....................white chocolate ( grated )
3 tsp.....................agar agar
3 tsbp..................cold water.
1/2 tsp................chocolate essence

Method for the white chocolate layer :

Mix agar agar in  cold water and keep aside for 10 minutes.
Take two vessels one small and one little bigger than the first one.
Now boil water in the smaller one .
In a bigger thick bottom vessel add the cream  and white chocolate .
When the water in smaller vessel boils keep the bigger one on top of the smaller vessel.
Stir the mixture in the upper vessel continuously till the chocolates completely melts.
This is called double boiled method.
Do not heat the cream and chocolate directly or else the cream will start leaving fats.
Remove from the heat and add chocolate essence and agar agar water and mix very well.
Cool and keep aside for further use.

Ingredients for the coffee layer :

2tbsp........................instant coffee powder
1/2 tbsp....................agar agar
2tbsp........................cold water
3tbsp.......................sugar
1/2 cup water

Method for the coffee layer :

Mix agar agar to cold water and set aside for 10 minutes.
Boil  1/2 cup water, sugar and coffee powder .
Add it to the agar agar mixture and blend well.
Keep it aside for further use.

Assembling : 

In a glass add 1/3 rd of the coffee mixture at the base.
Keep the glasses in freezer for 1/2 an hour for quick cooling.
When the coffee layer is firm to touch add the white chocolate layer.
Again set it in fridge or freezer depending on how quick you want it to set.
Check for the firmness of white layer.
In fridge it will take 4 to 5 hours to set and in freezer about 1 to 1 n 1/2 hours to set.
Now top with the remaining coffee layer and again freeze till the top is firm
Serve chilled garnished with white chocolate scrapings.
