Mango Panna Cotta


I know its really difficult to cook tasty food for a person like me. I always escape saying, Sagittarians are not good cooks. So, Blame my stars and Sun-sign , not me for the bad food served.  I go Awwww looking at Food blogs. People present the cooked food so well. Seeing GB’s food blog, I feel that I should be living with her , so i can eat all the food cooked by her or learn  photography and join as assistant to a chef.

My mom is a good cook. everybody in the colony come to her for recipes or take gongura pickle or carrot halwa made by her. I never realised her importance until I joined hostel. Again, I was lost in a different world that I was not interested in eating for taste. It was only eating for survival.

Then came my Bangalore days. Where I was staying as paying guest and money to explore food. May found my place in a group of foodies. That is when I had Bajji’s as dinner, Death by chocolate ice-cream as lunch, enjoyed buffet lunch and dinner at various places.

Then I got married, came into a family of foodies. A father-in-law who would enjoy any kind of food, encouraged me to make mistakes and learn. Mother-in-law who would have food prepared by anybody else other than her.  A daughter who would not eat food, if it doesnt smell good, A son who has got a sweet tooth.

So, slowly I stared cooking/experiment. So, here is the recipe from GB’s blog which i tried. the picture below is not even half good as the picture posted by her, but I appreciate myself for the effort I took to make it. well, my family liked it a lot.

Update: Why I didn’t try the angle? Simple, with a toddler constantly opening the fridge for something or the other, i couldn’t take the risk for tilting the glass and keeping inside the refrigerator. And as I live in Vizag, where its hard to find nonseasonal fruits, I had to pay quite too much for 2 mangoes which I used in this dish.

I welcome you here! My blog is primarily a blank paper with chronicles of my everyday thoughts and happenings around me spilling like colours. It has various hues, bright, cheerful at times dark episodes of my life. I like to speak a lot and tell stories, but rarely find patient listeners. So, here I am venting out, everything crossing my mind. it is also a record book of my little Barbie’s antics and growth. It is just not about the baby ,but also helps me to keep track of fights and special moments with husband, in-laws and friends. I am an Architect by profession working for an Govt. organization.living away from husband because of job location. I love writing, painting, reading and cooking (occasionally).I like roaming around and window shopping. But, now unable to move even an inch outside, because of my daughter. I am originally from Andhrapradesh and have lived in Tamilnadu for 25 years and now back in Andhra. So you will find mix of words from both the languages and me trying to settle down in this new place. Thanks for stopping by. I would love to hear from you. Please email me at ashreyamom@gmail.com.

  1. First point of non-agreement – my husband is a Sagi and he cooks damn well, even if he doesn’t follow any recipe 😀 😀
    Next season, I shall try this mango recipe !!

  2. Awww I am so glad it turned out good dear! Who wants the tilt when the food tastes good and the family is happy?! Kudos to your effort and thanks for the mention 🙂
