Coconut and Cardamon Panna Cotta with Roasted Coconut and Strawberries

If you have never had Panna Cotta you are in for a whole new category of mouth feel.  It is a pudding that made babies with a jello, in an indian the summer.  That about explains it perfectly.  I had this yesterday and a couple of the poeple I was with didn't like it. the texture was too off for them.  I however stood up and yelled  "bingo".  It is easy, and cheap,...have a go.

I took this recipe from 

1 cup cream
1 can coconut milk
½ cup sugar
About 20 pods of cardamom
3 tablespoons water
2 ½ teaspoons gelatin
Coconut Flakes

Heat the cream, coconut milk, sugar, and cardamom(open the pods and add the seeds inside only) until simmering. Allow to cook about 5 minutes stirring often. meanwhile mix the water and gelatin. Pour the cream mixture through a strainer over the water and gelatin. Stir to combine well. Pour into greased and sugared ramekins and refrigerate 2-3 hours. To unmold, run a knife around the edges and flip onto a plate. Top with toasted coconut flakes and serve.
