Carrot n Raisin Low-Fat Pannacotta

By Priya Srinivasan - I Camp in My Kitchen - Tuesday, April 10, 2012

Pannacotta, an italian dessert made using Cream. I have already posted Apple Pannacotta, Saffron-milk Pannocotta and Moong Dal Pudding(Low-fat Version). When Kalyani announced this month's Magic ingredients Carrot n Raisins for Magic Mingle, immediately i decided to make Low-Fat Pannacotta again.  I used a generous amount of Cinnamon to Flavor this Light Dessert, the taste was amazing.

3 Medium Carrots, Peeled and Chopped roughly
1/4 Cup Raisins (i used Sun-maid California Raisins)
2 Cups Milk  (i used full-fat)
1/4 Cup Sugar
1/4 Cup Agar-Agar/China grass, soaked in 1/2 Cup Water
1/2 tsp Cinnamon powder
2 tbsp Raisins for Garnishing

  •  Soak Agar-Agar/China Grass in Water for 30 minutes.
  • Take the Carrots, Raisin and Milk together and Pressure Cook for 3 Whistles. Let it Cool. Then Blend it smooth in a blender.
  • Heat the soaked agar-agar/china grass on a stove-top, in a Low flame. Let the Agar-agar dissolve completely. Strain the liquid.
  • Add this Strained  Warm agar-agar liquid to the Carrot-Raisin-Milk Mixture. Stir in the Cinnamon powder. Pour in small bowls/moulds. Let it Cool for 10 minutes, then refrigerate until set. 
  • Serve Chill with some raisins on top or if you  want a rich Dessert, then top it up with some Whipped Cream and fresh fruits. Enjoy!!!!
