Mango bhapa doi

Posted by

Bhapa doi is steamed yogurt and is a delight. It is a specialty from the land of amazing food West Bengal where I lived a good amount of time for higher studies. Steaming is a common technique used in Indian cuisine to make sweet and savory dishes. The process of making Bhapa doi involves mixing sweetened yogurt with other ingredients, placing it in a heatproof dish or ramekin, and steaming it until it’s set. Steaming hung curd in earthen pots or ramekins gives it a smooth texture. 

Adding mango to Bhapa doi is a delicious variation to the classic, and we savored it. I always keep a jar of pureed mangoes in the refrigerator to whip up desserts and drinks in no time. This saves me a lot of time, especially in a rush.
