Mishti Doi Recipe: How To Make Sweetened Curd

Mishti doi is a traditional Bengali sweet that is usually prepared during most celebrations and festive seasons. The Bengali mishti doi is basically sweetened dahi and is prepared by fermenting thick milk and caramelized sugar syrup.

The sweetened yoghurt is an easy procedure to follow and prepare. However, the setting of the sweet takes 10-12 hours. The full-cream milk is first reduced and mixed with the caramelized sugar. It is then fermented with curd and allowed to set in the refrigerator.

Mishti doi has a unique blend of the slight sourness of the curd and the sweetness of the caramelized sugar. This makes this sweet utterly delicious. So, if you are keen on trying this recipe at home, follow the video and the step-by-step procedure with images.
