Bhapi Doi is one of the easiest puddings to make and it's great for a dinner party because you can make it in advance. It's simply a steamed milk pudding that originates from Bengali cuisine. The Bengali's love rich sweet dishes and this doesn't disappoint. It has the texture of a panna cotta or a cheese cake but what is unique it that it has a slight yoghurt tang which is wonderful. Traditionally it is made with a cardamom flavouring and saffron for a little colour but you can flavour it however you like.
The little pots would be steamed (Bhap) on the hob or in the oven which is what I tend to do. I love to serve them with a tangy raspberry sauce that works beautifully with the creamy sweetness of this pudding. You will love it!
