Bhapa Doi is a traditional and popular Bengali Dessert. Bhapa means "Steamed" and Doi means "Curd/yogurt". Bhapa Doi is a very delicious Steamed Sweet Yogurt. I am a great fan of Bengali Sweets. Most of the Bengali sweets are made of fresh homemade paneer or with curd. This is one such mouth-watering dessert which is made of condensed milk and yogurt with lots of nuts. A very simple and quickly made dessert. A perfect dessert to treat our family and friends especially on special occasions.

Method:
  1. Take almonds, pistachios and cashews in a mixer and grind it to a coarse powder. This step is optional. We can add the nuts as it is also. But making a powder and mixing with yogurt mixture gives a nice taste

  2. Take a mixing bowl and pour the condensed milk. To the condensed milk, then add the thick beaten yogurt and mix well with a whisk. I have used thick yogurt. If your curd is not thick, just hang the curd in a muslin cloth for about 3-4 hours before making this recipe.

  3. Add milk to the mixing bowl and stir well with a whisk. Add powdered nuts and mix well

  4. Now our Bhapa Doi mixture is ready. Generally ramekins is used to bake or steam the Bhapa Doi. But Ramekins are not essential. We can even use the cooker vessel to steam the yogurt. 

  5. Pour the Bhapa Doi mixture to the ramekin moulds. Add blanced and slivered Pistachios in each ramekin. 

  6. Cover each ramekin mould with aluminium foil. This is to make sure water doesn't gets into the ramekins while steaming. Add 2-3 cups of water in a pressure cooker or idli steamer. When the water starts to boil, place the ramekins inside the cooker vessel and close the cooker with a lid and steam cook for 25-30 minutes. After the steam is fully released, allow the bhapa doi is come to room temperature and then keep the ramekins in a refrigerator and keep it refrigerated till you serve. 

  7. Generally Bhapa Doi is served chilled only

  8. The yummy and chill Bhapa Doi is ready to serve!!! Enjoy the rich dessert with your family and friends!
