White Plum Panna Cotta

white-plum1 It is still very hot here in Dubai and before it is getting better it is getting worse; hot and humid, day and night! I am not sure how they are surviving next month, the month of Ramadan when Muslims are fasting during day time and are not allowed to drink. Will update you in a later post on how this is working out for the fasting population here in Dubai. For today I prepared a special and refreshing dessert made with White Plums and Yogurt. White Plums are not seen here every day; even they are perfect for a summer dessert. I have made a small Panna Cotta with natural Yogurt and White Plum puree sitting on a light Green Tea Bretton tart. I have topped the Panna Cotta with a crunchy homemade Granola and mixed some rice crispy into it. All I served with a spiced Plum compote with Rosemary, Chili and a dry white wine. white-plum2
