Passion Fruit Panna Cotta


When it comes to eating fruits, I am very fussy!!! There are few fruits which I really don't like and would never ever taste no matter how healthy or nutritious they are!! One among such fruits, is the passion fruit..... The seeds of passion fruit are never appealing to my eyes and so I just don't like it..... Last week when JJ went to Kerala, he got some passion fruits from home and was wondering what to do with it as I didn't want to waste it too!!! I remember seeing few passion fruit recipes on Swapna's Cuisine.... And, I went ahead with the Passion Fruit Panna Cotta without giving a second thought as we are panna cotta lovers.
