Bhappa Doi

I love Bengali Sweets ,so when we got a East Indian Cuisine Theme for our potluck in the office, I just knew I am going to prepare a Bengali Dessert :)

Bhappa Doi - Steamed Curds is one of easiest and tastiest desserts that you can make.

You Need

Set curds / Plain Yogurt - 1.5 cups
Milk - 2 cups
Condensed Milk - 1.5 cups

Hang the curds and remove the whey. You need 1 cup hung curds for this recipe
Boil the milk and reduce it to 1 cup. Allow it to cool to room temperature
Mix the hung curds, milk and condensed milk
Whip till frothy
Take a cake pan and pour the mixture into it
Heat oven to 350F
Take a pan which is bigger than the cake pan, fill it with water so that when the cake pan is placed in it the water covers 3/4 of the cake pan
Bake for 15 - 20 mins or till a fork inserted comes out without liquid residue
Do not fret if the bhapa doi is not set, chill it in the fridge for 3 - 4 hrs
Serve garnished with sliced almonds and pista

Note: I made the bhapa doi in a muffin tray and found that the dhapa doi gets cooked and evenly that putting it in a big cake pan.
There are lots of recipes on the net for this dessert with the same basic 3 ingredients.. this is what I made and I liked :)

This is off to I love Baking #2 by Radhika and I am the Star event at Veg Food and Me
