Mishti Doi is synonymous with Bengal in East India.Bengali sweets is complete without "Mishti Doi" or sweet yoghurt. It is a must-have item on all auspicious occasions for Bengalis
Mishti Doi tastes great but is amazingly simple to make!
Mishti doi reminds me, and probably all Bengalis an earthen pot filled with a brownish mass of sweet curd.


  • Full Cream Milk-1ltr
  • Sugar-8 tbsp
  • Yogurt -2 tbsp
  • 1 Earthen pot (optional)

Pour the milk in a thick bottom vessel and heat over low flame

As it starts boiling add 4 tablespoons of sugar and keep on simmering till the volume is reduced to little less than half.

Take the remaining sugar with 2 tablespoons of water and heat till the sugar melts and attains a golden brown color.

Gradually add the molten sugar over the milk and boil for another 15 minutes over low flame

Take out of flame and let it become lukewarm

Pour the milk over the earthen pot and add the yogurt

Keep the pot in a warm, dry place, and let the yogurt set over night
Refrigerate the set dahi and serve as a dessert .
