  7. Neha this is surely amazing and your panna cotta looks so stunning! But my question is, how did you create those triangular layers?

    1. Hey purabai…I am glad that you liked it….To make layers, I poured pannacotta to 13 rd of the glass and then tilted the glass in a cupcake pan and then refrigerated it….So the first layer got set inclined…Then I poured the mango layer and tilted the glass on the opposite side…..That’s how I made the layers…let me know if this helps….
      Thnx

  9. I just made these yesterday and they were a HUGE hit! They tasted sweet yet really refreshing. I tilted the dessert glasses to achieve the triangular layers. Yes it was a bit fussy but the effect was oh so worth it! Thank you so much for a great recipe!!

  10. This looks amazing!! Beautiful presentation!! Can you help with the the vegetarian version pls?? how to use agar agar in this to substitute gelatine?

  11. looks amazing ,
    however in the middle mango layer you said mango puree and a mango cut into pieces, but in the method for the middle mango layer, the mango isn’t included?

    1. Reetika, To get the slanted layers, just pour the mixture in the glass and keep them in a muffin pan with a slight tilt. Now keep the pan with the glasses in the refrigerator. The pannacotta with set tilted.
