bengali sweet yoghurt or curd recipemishti doi recipe | bengali sweet yoghurt or curd recipe | mitha dahi with step by step photo and video recipe. basically mishti doi is prepared from boiling the milk till it is reduced to half and is thickened. later caramelised sugar or jaggery is added to evaporated milk to which curd or yogurt is added as starter. after adding the starter, it left for fermentation in dry warm place which yields thick sweet yogurt or mitha dahi.

being a south indian, curd or dahi is a must milk product in my day to day diet. typically our meal end with curd rice or just by consuming plain thick yogurt. according to my husband his meal is incomplete without the curd or dahi rice. basically it helps to lower the temperature of our body after consuming heavy spicy food. once in a while i try to make this sweet dahi or mishti doi recipe and serve ourselves as dessert. it is so addictive and trust me you would love to have it daily. but i avoid and prepare it once in week due to sweetness or sugar content.

mishti doi recipewhile the bengali mishti doi recipe is extremely simple, yet i would like to mention some tips and recommendations. firstly, always use thick full cream milk for this recipe otherwise the curd or yogurt would not be thick. secondly, i have added brown sugar in this recipe, alternatively you can use white sugar or jaggery. finally, fermentation should be done in a warm dry place and do not disturb it by mixing. alternatively you can also keep it in a per-heated (just preheat and turn off) oven to hasten the process.

finally i would like to highlight my other dessert recipes collection from my website. this includes, rasmalai, rasgulla, kalakand, milk cake, bread rasmalai, mango pudding, mango shrikhand, chum chum and mohanthal recipe. in addition do visit my other recipes collection like,

notes:

  • additionally, instead of using sugar, replace with jaggery for more healthier option.
  • finally, mishti doi can be stored for a week and enjoyed chilled.
