Bhapa Doi

Bhapa Doi

A very popular Bengali steamed sweet, made with Milkmaid condensed milk and thick curd.

Serves: 3

You will need

180 ml milkmaid sweetened condensed milk
200 ml curd (net weight of drained and thick curd - 150 g)
1/4 teaspoon cardamom powder
2 teaspoon dry fruits (optional)


Tie curd in a muslin cloth. Hang for 1 hour to remove excess water (see the photos).

Once the water drains off, remove the contents from the muslin cloth ( approximately 150 g thick curd ) and mix with milkmaid condensed milk and cardamom powder.

Pour milkmaid - curd mixture into a flat bowl and cover this with aluminum foil or grease proof paper.

Steam in pressure cooker ( without weight ) or steamer for 30 - 35 minutes on a medium heat.

Remove aluminum foil and keep aside to cool for 1 hour. Serve chilled. Sprinkle dry fruits (cashew nuts / raisins / almonds .... optional).
