Amer Doi Bhapa / Baked Curd With Mango

how to make Amer Doi Bhapa

Its summer time and mangoes are the real treasures now!!! One thing I am missing soooo badly now are the yellow...reddish juicy mangoes flooding the streets of Kolkta with its unique sweet fragrance!!! There may be a lot of dishes that can be made with mango but there is nothing more delicious than eating a ripe mango alone...with its juice dripping slowly from the fingers and then following the arm and then dripping finally from the elbow, and one, so intoxicated with its taste and flavor that all this nuisance is beyond recognition now...of course they can wait!!
Earlier I thought I will not get mangoes here but I was wrong. But I find my Kolkata mangoes way better than the mangoes I find rather than eating the mangoes alone I wanted to make something with them. Sometimes I freeze them in the freezer too and those frozen mangoes tastes sooo yum...just like ice cream!!! Try them some times...may be you will like them too. But now today its the time for Doi Bhapa with  Mangoes!!

Dish Reminder (update):

  • I like my bhapa doi to be little liquid when I make it with mangoes. So it is not so thick as you can see from the pictures. But if you like them to be more thick such that you can un-mold them then reduce the amount of milk and increase the amount of condensed milk. For 1 cup of milk and 1 cup of curd use 400ml/1 can of condensed milk. This will give you the desired thick consistency  in your Bhapa Doi.

  • 1 cup plain/greek yogurt
  • 2 cup sweetened condensed milk
  • 1 cup fresh cream
  • 1 cup mango puree
  • 1/2 cup chopped almonds, cashews and pistachios
  • Mix all the ingredients except the nuts.
  • Keep some chopped nuts aside for garnishing. Mix the rest of the nuts into the mixture.
  • Pour the mixture into the bowls.
  • Garnish with the kept aside nuts.
  • Now cover the bowls with aluminium foils so that it becomes airtight.
Now you can steam it as per your choice. As per the video of Sanjeev Kapoor that I followed here he put the airtight containers into a pressure cooker half full with water. He removes the pressure from it and cookes for 20-25 minutes or unless it is properly set in the dish.

But I cooked it a little differently. I boiled water in a saucepan. Then I put a strainer on it and put the bowls on it. Then covered the strainer with a cover so that the steam can not come out. I cooked it for approximately 30/40 minutes. And then chilled them overnight.
This Doi Bhapa can be made with any fruits of your choice other than mangoes or just plain doi bhapa is just as delicious as the name rings to the ears!!!!:)
