Lemongrass and Kaffir lime leaves infused Bhapa Doi

Bhapa Doi or Steamed yogurt is an extremely popular Bengali dessert to put a sweet ending to a satisfying meal. Although it may sound exotic, but it is incredibly simple to make. Different flavoring can be used to make Bhapa Doi, even no added flavor tastes divine.  My take on the classic dessert:


Lemongrass and kaffir lime infused Bhapa doi:

  • 2 cups hung yogurt ,
  • lemon grass very finely minced -1 tsp ,

  3. Pour into ramekin molds.
  4. Bake in an oven at the lowest setting (100-120 degrees ) for 35-40 mins.
  5. Leave it in the oven for half hour. Chill well before serving. Super easy.
