Recipe type: Dessert
Serves: 5 people
  • Apple, chopped- 2 (any sweet variety), pureed with ¼ cup cream
  • Cream- 2 cups (table cream or heavy cream)
  • Sugar- ½ cup
  • Agar-agar strands- ½ cup ( 2 inch slice) in ½ cup water
  • Chocolate, for garnishing
  1. As a thickening agent, I've used agar-agar strands. It's a vegetarian alternative to gelatin and is a seaweed.
  2. If using strands, take ½ cup of 2 inch slice strands. Or use 1 tbsp powdered agar agar. Or use gelatin 1 tbsp soaked in 3 tbsp water.
  3. Into a saucepan, add ½ cup agar agar strands & ½ cup water, cook over medium heat till agar dissolves in water.
  4. On the Instant Pot-Select Saute setting, the temperature should be medium.
  5. Into the Instant Pot stainless steel pot, add cream & sugar; combine well.
  6. Cook for 2 minutes.
  7. In a blender, puree apples with ¼ cup cream (Do not add water for pureeing, the color will change).
  8. Add the pureed apples to the cooked cream & sugar, combine well.
  9. Add the dissolved agar-agar, combine well.
  10. Cook for 2 minutes.
  11. Remove the pot from the main pot.
  12. Let cool down for a few minutes.
  13. Pour into dessert bowls.
  14. Chill in the refrigerator and let set for an hour to 2 hours.
  15. While serving, garnish the panna cotta with grated or shaved chocolates.
  16. Don't skip adding chocolate.
  17. Tastes heavenly along with the chocolates.
