If anybody has an incurable sweet tooth, it’s a Bengali – and they are proud of it. Mostly made of dairy products, Bengali sweets have a unique flavour and amazing mouth-feel. Ranging from sweet curds to rasagolla, their sweets are now famous all over the world.

Of these, Bhapa Doi is a rich and sweet curd-based dessert, which is perfect to end a meal. While it is usually made with full-fat milk sweetened with lots of sugar, we have come up with a pleasantly sweet version made using cow’s milk and minimal sugar.

You can comfortably include this Healthy Bhapa Doi in your menu, as it is comparatively low in fat and calories.

Hello!, I would like to know: 1. Can the sugar be whisked into the curds,along with elaichi powder and used for adding to the milk for curd setting. 2. If I want to add fresh fruits to this recipe, when can it be added. Thanking in advance.

Tarla Dalal    Hi Devasena, You can add the sugar into the curds,along with elaichi powder and use for adding to the milk for curd setting. You can use fruits to top the curd once it is set!

This tasted like sweet curds. Loved the flavour and when set in separate serving bowls they look attractive too!
