About Gulkand Mishti Doi Recipe

Beat the heat with the mouthwatering Bengali dessert ‘Gulkand Mishti Doi’. Gulkand Mishti doi or rose flavoured sweetened yogurt is made by thickening milk, flavoured with the aromatic gulkand, a dash of rose syrup for the beautiful blush pink color and set in earthen pots. Doi is dahi or yogurt and gulkand is a delicious rose petal preserve; both are said to be excellent coolants for the body during summers and marrying these two will take the humble mishit doi one notch up. Mishti doi is traditionally set in earthen pots as setting curd/yogurt in earthen ware absorbs all the excess water and the yogurt is set nice and thick. Serve Gulkand Mishti Doi chilled to your guest after an Indian meal.
