Bhappa Doi

A very simple Bengali sweet which is immensely enjoyed by my family.

Bhappa Doi - Serves 4
Steamed Yogurt Pudding
1/2 cup sweetened condensed milk
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup yogurt
3-4 cardamoms, crushed
A few strands of saffron

1. Whisk yogurt, milk, condensed milk together so as they are nicely incorporated.
2. Add in crushed cardamom, saffron and doodh masala.
3. Add water in the pressure cooker like you would usually add to cook rice.
4. Pour the yogurt-milk mixture equally in steel katoris/wati/watki/ramekins.
5. Invert a pressure cooker container. and place the containers on top of the inverted container as shown below.
6. Pressure cook for 2 whistles.

Note -
1. You can pour the mixture in pressure-cooker container instead of individual ramekins.
2. Some people just steam this pudding instead of putting pressure - just like steaming dhokla or idli.
3. The step of inverting pressure cooker container is just to isolate the ramekins from the boiling water below, in the pressure cooker.
4. You can easily increase the proportion by maintaining 1:1:1 ratio for yogurt, milk and condensed milk.
5. For this recipe, I used low fat plain organic yogurt, fat-free sweetened condensed milk and whole milk.
