Notes:

While adding the agar-agar to the water, stir it vigorously until it is completely dissolved before switching on the heat.

Don’t add the agar-agar powder directly in hot water otherwise, it will clump up.

If the panna cotta is sticking to your cup during unmould, place the cup in luke-warm water for a few seconds and tap it gently on the back of the cup with hand.
