Mishti Doi (Bengali sweet curd)

My sister Shukti and I are hard core mishti lovers and foodies.  The joy of partaking a delicious dish has to be shared with each other and that is what a major of our mail exchange  cover. The small joys of life? Though making us larger in size! The picture is of Shukti and me when we were in college.

The following recipe is from Shukti.

(a) 32 oz of plain curd (which I understand would be around 900 gms) 
(b) One tin of condensed milk
(c) One tin of evaporated milk

Mix the above three in a glass bowl. Cover the bowl.  Bake the mixture in the oven at 300 to 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 30 minutes. Turn off the oven. Do not touch the bowl and let it remain overnight inside the oven.  In the morning , move the mishti doi  to the refrigerator. Serve chilled.


  1. sounds very interesting. I shall try this out. BTW, what is evaporated milk?
    Also, you look great in the pic....long hair suited you shilpi. In fact you look like my sister Ramya in this snap!

  2. Hey Roopa, I do not know the difference between condensed milk and evaporated milk, but I find both of them stocked at all stores here...
