To me, Panna Cotta is like a eating a cream based jelly. It's in between a pudding and a jelly. They are soft and creamy and you can flavour them in many ways. Here are some typical photos of panna cotta. Feast your eyes.

Usually, you don't even have to remove the panna cotta from it's mould. What I usually do is serve them in wine glasses or other nice glasses like these
Green Tea Panna Cotta1/3 cup japanese green tea (sencha) *preferably tea leaves NOT tea bags*
1 cup milk
2 cups cream
1/2 cup caster sugar
4 teaspoons powdered gelatin
1. Add green tea, milk, cream and sugar in a pan and heat slowly till sugar is completely dissolved and the mixture is about to boil.
2. Remove from the heat and allow the mixture to"brew" for 10 minutes.
3. Strain the infusion back into a clean pan.
4. Soak the gelatine in 3 tablespoons of warm water until it is spongy.
5. Whisk into the cream mixture and heat gently until the gelatine has dissolved.
6. Pour into 4 lightly greased 150ml (5 fl oz) moulds or chinese teacups.
7. Refrigerate till they are set.
8. Serve them in the pretty teacups when ready, or turn them out onto individual plates.
