Kolkata's Mishti Doi



No account of Bengali sweets is complete without "Mishti Doi" or sweet yoghurt. It is a must-have item on all auspicious occasions for Bengalis.Having grown up outside Bengal for most of my life, mishti doi has always been a special treat. (Till recently I don't think it was available in Bombay).... Something we would have only while visiting family in Bengal or Bihar.

So when a friend gave me the recipe for Mishti Doi (and a very simple one too!) I was thrilled. I made it at once and then I filed it away so well that I never foundit again! :-) The other day, I tried it from memory and it turned out very close the mishti doi we get in Kolkata.

Without much ado, here is the recipe:

1 can (14 oz) Sweetened Condensed Milk
1 can (12 oz) Evaporated Milk
~1 cup plain yogurt

Mix all ingredients well and pour into a flat over-safe container. Bake at 200 F for about 1 hr 15 min or till it sets. Cool and then refrigerate.

BTW, did you know that even early Vedic texts speak of curds and call it the "food of the Gods"? A blended curd-rice dish is mentioned in the Rigveda as karambha (I have been told that is it's name name even today in Gujarati).

Hi All,
Being non-blog-savvy, for a while I thought there were no comments at all. Till I saw a bunch of stuff in my inbox waiting to be moderated!
Thank you for visiting and for your kind comments.

VKN: Thank you! BTW, yours was the first blog I accidentally stumbled upon and followed links from there to this whole new world, I had no idea existed!

Asha, Sri, Anwesha,

It is very easy (no way I would try this on a weeknight otherwise). Let me know how it turns out.

Sandeepa,
I don't even remember when I last ate Mishti Doi in Kolkata - it's been so long.... But is is close enough for me!

BTW, so thrilled to se you here. I LOVE your blog and have tried some of your recipes. Your repertoire of Bong recipes is far larger than mine (which has a lot of Mumbaiya influence).


Trupti,

I hope to be able to do some cooking over the long weekend. Hopefully will have new posts after that!

I am a Bengali and I just love misti doi. Since I live in San Francisco, I do not get it and hence try to suffice with all types of yogurt. Now that I got this recipe, I am trying it straight away and will definitely let you know how it came up. Thanks for this recipe.

I did it and came out really well...just like Kolkata doi...loved it...even my son who is a picky eater liked it....now I am going to try the same recipe with milk and not with yogurt and see how it comes up!

There are many websites that will offer you with more detailed information and you will also go through the cruel X reviews therefore that each one your queries are sorted. Shoppers have loved it as a result of it's one hundred% contemporary , clean and offers them a delightful experience while relaxing. They want been raving concerning this amazing product because it isn't like the opposite incense which offers residues of stems, twigs and seeds. This herbal spice blend burns smoothly and is clean.

I'm not sure if I had this before. K.C.Das, a Bengali sweet mart shop in B'lore used to sell it in little mud pots. Is it the same? I love Bengali sweets & miss India a hell of a lot.
