  • Bhapa Doi recipe
  • Preparation time:2 hrs Cooking time: 20 minutes Serves:3
  • Ingredients
  • 2 cup yogurt
  • 1/2 cup condensed milk
  • 1/2 tsp cardamom powder
  • Pistachios to garnish


  • Put the curd in a sieve or hung this in a Muslin cloth for 2 hours.
  • If using a strainer, keep a bowl below.
  • You can keep this inside the fridge to avoid this getting sour.
  • I used a big strainer. The extra water will get collected in the bowl.
  • You can use the water to knead roti dough.
  • Add the thick yogurt into a bowl.
  • Now add condensed milk to this.
  • Add cardamom powder. I added milk masala to this.
  • Mix well evenly.
  • Transfer this to individual heatproof bowls.
  • You can steam this in a steel dabba too.
  • Cover the bowls using a foil.
  • Steam this for 20 minutes. I used my Idli steamer.
  • You can steam this in a pressure cooker too.
  • Once done take out and cool.
  • This will be thickened after steaming.
  • Refrigerate this for 3-4 hours or overnight.



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.
