Yesterday I posted about this citrus fruit, which I believe to be a Rangpur "lime" (technically not a lime!). And as promised, here is the recipe:
Panna Cotta with Rangpur agar agar topping
500 ml cream (if you are Vegan use Coconut cream, I am sure that it would go very well with this citrus topping!)
2 tbsp sugar
1 level tsp agar agar
for the topping
4 Rangpur limes
2 tbsp sugar
Half level tsp agar agar
Bring the cream to the boil with the sugar and agar agar, simmer until the sugar and agar agar have dissolved (about one minute) stirring constantly, then pour into some glasses (I used different glasses, Martini and grappa mainly, since I hardly use them to drink with I thought it would be nice to show them off with a dessert!). Let the panna cotta cool down completely, and set. In the meantime separate the Rangpur segments into a bowl and remove all pips. Add 2 tbsp of sugar and let them rest at room temperature (in the sun if possible) and covered for an hour or two to dissolve the sugar and make some juice. Then put the segments and juice in a measuring jag and add water to take the Rangpur mixture up to 300ml. Add half level tsp of agar agar and bring to the boil. Pour over the panna cotta and let it set at room temperature before refrigerating until serving time.
PS, don't forget to keep the peels and click here for a fragrant citrus bath idea!
