Homemade Mishti Doi

Homemade Mishti Doi

I never miss a chance to taste Mishti Doi - a quintessential Bengali sweet prepared traditionally in earthen pots. Its thick, sweet, creamy with a slightly brown-red tinge and never sour. Mishti Doi makes an unforgettable and pleasant experience for anyone who tasted it.

I attempted to make mishti doi at home and it came out perfectly, just like the ones we get in Bengali sweet shops. You may also try this ..

Serves: 3

You will need

500 ml milk
50 g sugar
2 teaspoons extra sugar
3 teaspoons curd


In a bowl, boil milk. Simmer to low heat and stir continuously for 20 minutes until it thickens and reduces to half of the original quantity. Mix sugar and allow it to cool down ( for smoother texture of mishti doi blend the mix in a mixer after adding sugar ).

In a small pan, caramelize 2 teaspoons sugar ( in a pan heat sugar on a low heat till light brown color). Pour this caramelized sugar to thickened milk and stir well.

Add 3 teaspoons curd and stir gently. Pour this mixture in earthen bowls and keep aside for 6 - 7 hours.

Later keep these in refrigerator for 5 hours to set completely. Serve cool.
