vanilla coconut panna cotta with persimmons, oranges and pomegranates

I developed this recipe for an Indian dinner where I thought a creamy dessert with some type of coconut base would balance the  spiciness of the main meal.

The topping of persimmons, oranges, and pomegranates is best in late autumn when persimmons are in season.  However, adding other fresh, seasonal toppings work just as well, such as, berries and stone fruits.
