  • The next day, soak 2 gelatin sheets in cold water for 5 minutes. Take the cream out of the fridge, drain the flowers out, and then warm it in a saucepan. Add 2 tbsp of sugar, mix well. Warm the cream until it is about to boil. Take the gelatin sheets out and squeeze the excess water. Add them into the warm cream, mix well.

Decoration – Color

  • You can use some pink food coloring to decorate the panna cotta, so it will be more rose-like. If you don’t have food coloring, you can boil some fruit rinds instead to get the pink color (such as dragon fruit, peach…). See the video for more details.

Decoration – Rose tapioca pearls

  • Tear some rose petals into small pieces. In a saucepan, heat up ½ cup of water with 2 tbsp of sugar. When it boils vigorously, add into the tapioca flour. Mix well with the rose petals.

  • Knead the dough and separate it into several pieces. Roll each of them into long rod-like pieces, and then cut them into small pieces. Use your palms to roll these small pieces into balls. Sprinkle with tapioca flour to prevent them from sticking to each other.
  • Boil some water, and cook the tapioca pearls for 15 minutes over medium heat. Then turn off the heat, cover with the lid and simmer for 5 minutes. Drain the water out and add 2 tbsp of sugar to prevent the tapioca pearl from sticking. And now it is ready to use for the dessert.

Can I use gelatin powder instead in this recipe?

Yes! In that case, the quantity will be slightly different. For one gelatin sheet, it equals 1 tsp of powdered gelatin (2.3g). For every tsp of gelatin, bloom in 1 tbsp water.
