We love Panna Cotta and we have obsession anything with Caramel flavours. In May, 2010 I prepared panna cotta for the first time - Alphonso Mango Panna Cotta , which turned out delicious. Then there was a White Chocolate Panna Cotta with Dark Chocolate sauce, very chocolicious, I had to miss it as I can't handle chocolate, but I heard good reviews about it:)

Being Indian in origin, I always fiddle with authentic recipes and turn those recipes into fusion recipes, or if  I put it in posh words 'Modern Twist on the Traditional Recipes' and I prepared Thandai Panna Cotta with Rose Saffron jelly. and Doodh Poha with Nutella Panna Cotta. They were phenomenal!

While I myself and daughter were preparing Paneer and Vegetable Makhni Dum Biryani we were left with almost 200-250ml cream. We had a short discussion on making Panna Cotta. I asked the family if they want to have Caramel Panna Cotta or Vanilla Panna Cotta with Salted Peanut Brittle, secretly I was wishing and had my fingers crossed for Salted Peanut Brittle Panna Cotta, but the family decided to have Caramel Panna Cotta. When they asked me I told them about my choice, they were feeling guilty and asked me to make Salted Peanut brittle Panna Cotta, luckily on right time my mind made a right decision, So we had this unexpected sweet treat, Caramel Panna Cotta with salted peanut Brittle. This luscious Caramel Panna Cotta dessert topped with sweet, salty and nutty crunch was absolutely bang on.

These creamy little custards make for the perfect Father's day or year-round treat. This dessert is super satisfying and very easy to prepare, the salted peanuts brittle is really easy to make too, making brittle is so much fun and can be made relatively quick with my method below.  The saltiness and sweetness of the brittle absolutely gorgeous with the caramel custard. These mini treats are to die for and see some hands hovering over the second or third, so make extra!

Notes:-
I have used organic coconut sugar in making caramel pannacotta as coconut sugar has naturally caramel flavour.
If you do not want to use coconut sugar, use light Muscovado sugar or regular white sugar.
The Brittle is also especially good when made with other nuts such as cashew, walnuts or macadamia in place of peanuts.

Meanwhile, make brittle.Lightly oil a baking sheet or line with baking parchment.In a non-stick pan add sugar and 100ml water.Heat the pan gently, and let the sugar dissolve itself.Once sugar dissolve, gently stir it and bring it to boil.Then boil about 10 minutes until the syrup reaches to a deep amber coloured caramel.Don't let the caramel go darker or the taste will be bitter.Remove the pan from the heat and quickly add the salted peanuts to it.Give it a quick stir and tip the mixture onto baking sheet.Spread it quickly into a thin layer with the spoon or spatula and leave it to harden.Once it hardens break into small pieces.Once pannacotta is ready, top with salted peanut brittle and serve chilled.Enjoy.
