Bhapa doi is a unique dessert made with steamed yogurt (‘bhapa’ means steamed). It originated in Bengal and is eaten during Durga Puja celebrations. Different versions of bhapa doi like nolen gur bhapa doi, saffron bhapa doi and mango bhapa doi are popular. There is a misconception that bhapa doi and mishti doi are the same, but they are very different in reality. The yogurt used for mishti doi is not steamed. It is believed that mishti doi was brought to Bulgaria by nomadic tribes almost 4000 years ago.
