Mango Panna Cotta, again!

Mango Panna Cotta (ii)
Yes, again. This time, I did it in the simplest way possible; but plated it differently, from my previous attempts. Simple, because its just cream and mango cordial, mixed (half and half), a heaped teaspoon of dissolved gelatin added, to each cup's worth of mixture. (Fresh fruit reduction gives a more complex flavor, and takes more time). Usually I pour the mix into shot glasses; this time I wanted to 'turn it out,' so emboldened by extra gelatin, I poured the mix into small coffee cups, and after four hours in the frig., I prized out the gelled cream with a knife, tapped the bottoms of the cups, sliding the gel out.
I added a little more cordial, reduced with a little wine, into the bowls, and garnished every thing with sliced fresh mango. Yes, its that easy.

Hi Pradeep, stumbled across your blog while I was trying to get some info on eating out in Sri Lanka. Love the recipes and the photos!
I am visiting SL in the middle of September with a bunch of architects from Hyderabad, India and would really appreciate some guidance on where to eat while we are there. We are visiting 3-4 cities and need mainly dinner options. Do let me know if you can help me out and I shall let you know our itenarary.

Sorry to write all this in comments, but I couldn't find your email on the blog. Hope to hear from you soon.
