Mishti Doi (Traditional Bengali Sweet Yogurt)


1 can of condensed Milk,
1 cup of Evaporated Milk,
1 cup of Greek Yogurt.


Mix the above ingredients and  beat with a hand mixer or in the blender till nice and frothy. Pour in a baking dish.

Use a little less than 1 can of condensed milk if you don’t like it very sweet.

Also if you do not have greek yogurt you can use regular full fat plain yogurt but do strain out the whey.

Heat Oven to 350 F. Fill a large baking tray with water. Put the baking dish with the mix in it so that water is half way up. Do not cover the baking dish.

After 30 – 35 minutes the yogurt will be set,
if not allow a couple more minutes. Take it out and chill in the refrigerator for 2-3 hours.

Garnish with saffron strands and serve.  You can also garnish with crushed pistachios.

    Wow..how lovely to find a recipe for mishti doi. I spent my childhood years in Calcutta (till I was 6) and have memories of Mishti Doi in a little clay pot but have never had it since… I will have to try this and will let you know how it turns out, but it brought back memories just to read about it!
