bhapa doi recipebhapa doi recipe | steamed yogurt pudding | bengali yogurt sweet recipe with step by step photo and video recipe. bengali cuisine is known for its creamy and satisfying dessert recipes made with milk or with milk products. most of these desserts are made with milk by evaporating it or by curdling it. but there is some bengali dessert made with curd or yogurt and bhapa doi recipe is one such simple creamy dessert recipes.

i have posted quite a few dessert recipes including many bengali desserts, but this recipe of bhapa doi is very unique. it is unique because of its cooking procedure. to begin with, the yoghurt is strained to remove water content from it. this process is also known as hung curd which is a very common procedure to make maharastrian shreekand or any curd based dessert. however, it is later mixed with a sweetener like sugar or condensed milk and then steamed to form cheesecake like texture. steam would further reduce the moisture level to form a wobbly jelly-like texture. as matter of fact with the texture you may easily get confused that gelatin or agar agar may have been added, but it is just 2 ingredients. you may serve these either chilled or warm, but if you as my personal preference, i would go for super-chilled option.

anyway, before wrapping up the post, some tips, suggestions and variations to bhapa doi recipe. firstly, the yogurt for this recipe has to be fresh and also less sour. if you use fresh curd, it would not be sour in taste anyway. but if you want to use store-bought yogurt, you may choose greek yogurt as it is creamy and less sour. secondly, as a sweetener, you can use jaggery, sugar powder or even condensed milk as shown in this recipe. i chose condensed milk because it makes the end product more creamy and more satisfying. lastly, if you wish to serve it warm, you may have to serve it immediately once it is removed from the steamer. hence it makes it more practical to keep it in the fridge and serve it chilled.
