[Recipe] Matcha Panna Cotta
Updated: Mar 1
Panna Cotta is an Italian dessert made with sweetened cream and thickened with gelatin. The texture of this dessert is between pudding and jelly. It is also very common in Asian countries where the cream may be aromatized with matcha powder, black sesame powder, or other flavorings. For simplicity, people usually can also top it with fresh fruit or jam, or sweet red bean paste.
