Bhapa Doi- Steamed Yoghurt Dessert

Bhapa Doi is a Bengali dessert. Bhapa meaning steamed and Doi means yoghurt. My niece had tried it recently and declared it a must-have. I've followed the recipe exactly as she had given me and we truly relished it. Simple to prepare and delicious. Can also be given as one of the baby's first foods.
1 cup yoghurt
1 cup milk
1 can condensed milk (400 gms)
almonds blanched and sliced

  • Whisk the yoghurt, add milk and condensed milk and blend well.
  • Add nuts and raisins and mix well.
  • Pour into pudding mould.
  • Cover with butter paper and tie around the mould.
  • Pour 2 cups of water into a pressure cooker, and place the mould on a stand.
  • Bring to full pressure on high heat, then reduce and cook for 20 minutes. Dont close the lid as for pressure cooking.
  • Once done allow to cool.
  • Remove from the cooker and allow to cool. Drain off the excess water and serve.
