This steamed yoghurt dessert from Bengal, flavoured with the king of fruits, is super simple to make and will easily become your go-to dessert this summer.
Mango season has officially begun and everyone has only started to relish the fruit. No matter how many cheesecakes, cakes, chia puddings or milkshakes we make, the fruit has innumerable applications that haven’t been tapped into yet. One of them – a mango-flavoured bhapa doi – a summer variation of the Bengali dessert which translates to steamed yoghurt, could give any cheesecake a run for its money. What’s special about this dessert is that it uses only the bare minimum ingredients, is not too sweet and has a soft wobble, like that of caramel custard. Although bhapa doi is popularly eaten during Durga pujo, a festival that happens in the latter half of the year, reviving the recipe to make the most of this seasonal abundance of mangoes, is totally worth your while!
