Bhapa Doi

Bhapa Doi is a popular Bengali dessert made using yogurt. An easy, thick creamy dessert made with just 2 ingredients, curd and condensed milk.

Wishing you all a very Happy New year 2021. Let this New year brings you an abundance of good health, joy, and happiness. Thank you so much dear readers for your continuous support. Looking forward to the same in the coming years too.

Bhapa Doi I have tasted a few years back in Singapore. I happened to taste store-bought one. Recently when we visited my Cousin Anandi in Hongkong, she made Bhapa Doi for dessert. We all loved it and the recipe she followed is super easy too.

Last year I happened to note down the gist of this recipe from a Bengali friend but didn’t try that. That recipe is the authentic version of Bhapa Doi using Nolen Gur or Jaggery.

Please check out the notes section to see the variations. I adapted the easy method with just 2 main ingredients.

Notes

1. Instead of condensed milk, you can boil ¾ cup of full cream milk and reduce it to ½ cup.
2. Add 3-4 tbsp of powdered jaggery or nolen gur to this and mix well.
3. For friends in South East Asian countries, you can use Gula melaka instead of jaggery.
4. Bhapa Doi is a perfect dessert for a party.
