Sweet Yogurt, or Mishti Doi, or sweet yogurt, is possibly the most popular and beloved sweet dish in Bengal. Fans of this iconic Bengali dessert—fermented set yogurt sweetened with caramelized sugar—are found all over the subcontinent, including Bangladesh, and even further afield.

Ingredients

Directions

  1. In a pan take sugar and water. Boil on low medium heat. When it turns into caramel add milk. Keep stirring and reduce to 2/3. Make it cold to lukewarm, but not completely cold.
  2. Now beat the sour yogurt to smooth paste using a fork and mix with the milk. Strain extra water from the curd before using.
  3. Pour the mixture of the milk from a bit high into a dry bowl or pot to make some foam. Importantly keep in mind that the bowl or pot where the yogurt is to be set must be dry. Cover, wrap with a towel and keep it overnight or at least 8 hours.
  4. If the yogurt is not set, keep another 5-6 hours. Then you can serve.
