Panna cotta is a delicious and flavourful Italian dessert made using gelatin. In this recipe, I have tried to recreate the flavour and taste of panna cotta using agar agar. The panna cotta tasted flavourful and delicious and it is the strawberry puree that adds the much needed sweetness and taste to the panna cotta. Do try out this delicious and simple Panna cotta recipe and I am sure you will be impressed with its fabulous taste.


1/2 litre full cream milk
1 packet china grass/ agar agar (10 gms)
2 tbsp condensed milk
4 tbsp sugar (or to taste)

For the strawberry puree

8 to 10 strawberries
2 tbsp sugar (or as needed)

Pomegranate seeds and mint leaves for garnish
muffin moulds

  • Wash and soak the china grass in water for about 10 minutes. 
  • Then drain the excess water and grind the china grass to a fine paste. 
  • Transfer the china grass paste to a bowl and keep ready.
  • Next remove the leaves from the strawberries and grind the strawberries along with 2 tbsp sugar to a fine puree. Do not add water.
  • You can add more or less sugar depending on the sweetness of the strawberries.
  • Transfer the strawberry puree to a small container and refrigerate till you are ready to serve.
  • Boil milk in a pan and bring to a boil, reduce the heat and cook for about 10 minutes in low flame.
  • Meanwhile cook the china grass with 1 cup of water in another pan till it completely dissolves. 
  • Then add sugar to this and cook for a couple of minutes.
  • Remove the agar agar mix from flame and add milk and condensed milk. 
  • Mix well and check for taste. Add more sugar if necessary and give a quick mix.
  • Pour the milk-agar agar mix into small muffin moulds or any bowls or cups of your choice.
  • Allow it to cool down completely. The liquid will solidify on reaching the room temperature. 
  • Refrigerate for at least 3 to 4 hours and de-mould the panna cotta into small plates.
  • Pour the strawberry puree on top and garnish with mint leaves and pomegranate seeds.
  • Your vegetarian panna cotta with ingredients available in every Indian home is ready to be served.
