One day my friend Nivedita came to my house. She brought this mishti dohi for me. Have tasted this authentic dohi in Odisha 4-5 yrs back & since then craving for it & after coming to US it was a dream for me..It tasted divine... was super delicious & my hubby became a big fan of this...He told me to learn the recipe from her & to make it. Then I just noted all the ingredients & tried @ home....wohhhh...super easy dessert & quick with minimum ingredients..U just hav to run to the market & bring some stuffs...heheh...It came out really nice...finger licking & toooo delicious....I have always wanted to make this but never know it was so simple - thanks Nivi for this lovely recipe...U r just a swtheart... Well after lots of drooling lets come to the main point…..how to make them?
so friends here is the recipe..:)
1 can evaporated milk
1 can condensed milk
1 ½ cup of thick yogurt
1 ½ cup of milk
Cardamom powder- 1tblsp
Preheat the oven to 350ºF.
Boil the milk & then let it cool for some time. It should be in a room temperature.
Take a big bowl. Beat the curd so that there will be no lumps.
Then add condensed milk, evaporated milk & milk. Mix well & beat it for 1-2 min. Add cardamom powder & again mix well.
Transfer it to an oven safe square dish. I didn’t have square dish so I have used round bowl.
Now reduce the oven temperature to 200 degree F. Then place the dohi bowl inside the oven for 40-45 mins.
After 40 mins it should be bit thick in consistency. Then let it cool for some time & keep it in the refrigerator for over nite. After refrigerating the curd will be thick like the below pic.
Your mishti dohi is ready to serve now...Njoy the chilled mouthwatering dohi....
For those whoe doesn’t have oven they can follow this simple procedure.
Take a vessel/ large saucepan add 1 ½ litre milk & 6 tblsp of sugar to it. Let it boil in the low flame till the volume is almost reduced to half. Take 3-4 tblsp of sugar with 3tblsp of water. Heat it till sugar melts & turn to dark brown in colour. Then add this sugar mixture to the boiling milk & again boil it for 10-15min in a low flame. After 5 mins. Pour the milk to a bowl. Add 2tblsp of yogurt & 1tblsp cardamom powder.
Mix it & Cover & keep it over night in a warm place. Then refrigerate it for another 3-4 hours & serve chilled. If you want u can add some chopped nuts to it.
