Panna Cotta Lemon Grass – Astonishing!

I usually make a double – and it stretches to 8 remkins like this one (close to 180 ml) – each more than adequate for a single serving.  Orange Caramel is full of spicy bite, you may censor it for children and those of delicate palette.

So the prescription below will be just enough for 4

For panna cotta:

  • 300 ml milk
  • 375 ml whipping cream
  • 60g sugar
  • 1 stalk lemongrass, white part only, chopped
  • 8-9 g powdered gelatin

for the orange and chilli caramel

  • 1 teaspoon corn syrup
  • 200g sugar
  • 250 ml water
  • 1 orange, quartered
  • 1 fresh long red or green chilli, seeded and halved

Make Panna Cotta

  1. combine 200 ml milk, whipping cream, sugar and lemon grass
  2. bring to boil over medium heat
  3. reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes
  4. remove from heat and let stand for 1 hour
  5. strain
  6. pour remaining milk into a small pot
  7. sprinkle with gelatin
  8. dissolve slowly over low heat, stirring occasionally
  9. stir gelatin into cream mixture and cool
  10. stir occasionally until cold
  11. oil 4 half cup ramekins or other small dishes and strain the mixture into them
  12. chill four hours or until set – overnight is ok in a cool place
  1. place ramekins in hot water for a minute or less, if they are thin metal or glass
  2. turn panna cotta into individual serving dishes or serve in moulds
  3. garnish with caramel

Make Orange Caramel

  1. combine corn syrup, sugar, water and orange quarters in a saucepan and stir over low heat until sugar dissolves
  2. raise heat to medium and continue to cook, swirling the pan occasionally, for 30 minutes or until the syrup becomes a pale, golden color
  3. remove from heat
  4. pour caramel into a heatproof bowl and remove oranges
  5. set aside to cool
  6. place chili in small saucepan with 1 cup water and boil over high heat for 2 minutes
  7. drain and finely chop chili
  8. add chill to caramel and stir.
  9. once cool, if caramel is too firm, add a little warm water until well combined and caramel is thick, pouring consistency
