Mishti Doi -- Bengali Passover Dessert?

hanertia | Apr 3, 2011 08:12 PM

I loved mishti doi when I had it in Calcutta. The basic idea is ultra thick yogurt, sweetened with either jaggery, sweetened condensed milk, brown sugar, etc.

I've tried to make it a couple of times with a tub of whole milk yogurt, a tin of sweetened condensed milk, and an oven, but I haven't found the line between too much heat = separation of curds and too little heat = not thick enough. This is the method I (think I) saw when visiting, so I know there's hope. The blogosphere recipes I've found look pretty ragged, and most of them start with milk, but I'd prefer quick and dirty. Any advice?

Seems like a perfect Passover dessert.
