For the chocolate pannacotta:

  • 90 ml milk, full-fat (¼ cup + 2 tbsps)
  • 150 ml heavy cream (½ cup + 2 tbsps)
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla essence
  • 2 tablespoons granulated sugar (24 grams)
  • 2 teaspoons gelatin (7 grams)
  • 2 tablespoons water, ice cold (30 ml)
  • 90 grams dark compound chocolate, roughly chopped (½ cup)
  • oil for greasing

For the chocolate sauce:

  • 120 ml heavy cream (½ cup)
  • 90 grams dark compound chocolate, roughly chopped (½ cup)


  • Grease 2 cups with unflavored oil using a brush. Set aside
  • In a small bowl, combine the gelatin and cold water together. Set aside for 10 minutes to bloom
  • Next, in a saucepan on medium heat, combine the milk, heavy cream, vanilla essence and sugar. Mix well. Add the bloomed gelatin and continue cooking until all the gelatin has melted
  • Bring this mixture to a boil. Switch off the gas and add the chopped dark chocolate to it. Mix well making sure all the chocolate melts. Incase, the chocolate has not melted well, switch on the gas for 2 to 3 mins on medium heat
  • Strain this pannacotta mixture and pour in cups. Refrigerate for 4 to 5 hours
  • Once firm and ready, its time to demold. Place the cups in a bowl filled with hot water. This will loosen the edges of the pannacotta. You may even run a knife through the edges of the mold. Tilt this pannacotta over a plate to demold

For the chocolate sauce:

  • Heat the heavy cream in a microwave or a sauce pan on medium heat. Once heated, add the chopped chocolate to it and mix well. The chocolate should melt in the heat of the cream. Let this sit at room temperature for 10 minutes. Then, pour it over the chocolate pannacotta and serve with fresh fruits (optional)
