Ingredients to make Mishti Doi - Traditional Bengali Sweet Yogurt Secrets

  • 1 litre whole milk
  • 1 cup/ 200 gm sugar
  • 1/2 cup plain yogurt

How to make Mishti Doi - Traditional Bengali Sweet Yogurt Secrets

  1. Bring the milk to boil with 1/2 cup of sugar. Reduce it to half of its quantity.
  2. Now put 1/2 of the sugar with a splash of water in another pan. Caramelize it on a medium to low flame. Make sure you don't burn it when caramelizing. You can see the sugar melts and changes it's color to brown gradually.
  3. Add the boiled milk to the caramelized sugar carefully. Put the flame low initially and stir till the sugar completely dissolves.
  4. Let the milk cool down to lukewarm temperature. But don't allow the cream layer to set on the top. So stir it.
  5. You can transfer into two bowls to bring down the temperature. When it is in right temperature, add whisked yogurt and mix. Don't add yogurt when the milk is hot, it will curdle.
  6. Put in a bowl and keep it on warm place by covering well for at least 12 hours.
  7. Once set, refrigerate it for a couple of hours and serve chilled.

My Tip:

It is better to set it in an earthen pot that soaks up all the moisture and leaves the rich mishti doi. If you don't have earthen pots, then put it in glass or ceramic bowl.
