Mishti Doi ( Quick way )

Summer in San Diego is slowly but surely picking up speed and at the same pace, our number of parties is also going up. Nowadays it’s very difficult to get date from any friend, we are busy from Friday to Sunday night. Before every party I am seeing a common trend. We are all set to host a party and ready with the menu of the main courses, but take time to decide which dessert to prepare. Probably most of us fear to make a dessert compared to starter or main courses. 

Today I will share the recipe of a Bengali sweet that will make your life easy before any party. It is the most easiest dessert that you can make at home.  When The word Mishti Doi comes to our mind, all Bengali would immediately start thinking of a small earthen pot filled with rich and creamy sweet yogurt. It's so famous that I have seen people outside Bengal are so fond of this sweet. I can still recall that in the Bangalore K C Dash shop, people from all places used to love Mishti Doi as much as Rosogolla or Rasmalai.  

I have shared the recipe of Misti Doi last year but that was the authentic way of making Mishti Doi . The procedure was also undoubtedly easy but it takes relatively longer time. At that time, some of my readers asked if there is any short-cut. So I thought it would be perfect to share the quickest and easiest one in the middle of summer.  You just need to mix three ingredients and put it in the oven. This process is nothing original but very common to the Bengalis who stay outside of India and doesn’t have much patience. To make this yogurt you don't need any earthen pot but a baking dish. When I made this recipe first time I was surprised and never thought I could make it so fast. And you are wondering about taste ? I can assure that you won’t miss the Mishti Doi from Kolkata anymore.

  2. Does it have to be bAked at two different temperatures? Coz there is preheat at 400 degrees F and then again at 200 degrees F? Sorry am a lil confused -

  3. At first put the oven temperature to 400 degrees F. ( this is for preheating ) After 5 or 7 mintutes set the temerature to 200 degrees F and bake the yogurt. If you are still confused forget it bake the yogurt at 250 degrees F.
