Mishti Doi is a famous Bengali sweet. In the Bengali language, the word mishti means sweets and the word doi means curd. It is one of my favourite sweets. This classic Bengali sweet is made with milk, curd and jaggery.
Mishti Doi is a fermented sweet curd made by thickening milk. The preparation technique of mishti doi differs from that of curd or plain yoghurt. It is majorly placed in earthen pots to cool.
The traditional mishti doi is sweetened with jaggery instead of sugar.
It is easily available in the markets across India. Nowadays a lot of variants of mishti doi can be seen in the market such as mango flavoured mishti doi.
