3. Put the mango and turn off the heat. Do not boil.
4. Set Aside in a container and refrigerate. 

Cooking the Panna Cotta
1. Pour milk into a cup and put the gelatin powder. Stir to dissolve the gelatin and set aside.
2. Heat the pan, put in the cream/all purpose cream. Mix with about 2 tbsp of sugar. (actually depends on your taste). DO NOT BOIL.
