"This is a light and tasty cheesecake-like desert. This version is ridiculously easy and was made for me by my friend Anu Choudhury in Mexico City." — Priyanka

1 (32 ounce) container
plain whole-milk yogurt
1 (14 ounce) can
sweetened condensed milk
The best way to describe this is that it is like a crustless sourcream cheesecake but with yogurt. I used lowfat plain yogurt and fatfree sweetened condensed milk without any problem. I did add a teaspoon of vanilla and mine baked up in about 25 minutes. It was a bit too sweet for me and if I make it again I will not scrape the milk can clean but just pour in what comes out and see how it is then or if I need to adjust more. My understanding of Bhapa Doi (steamed yogurt) is that it is traditionally made with evaporated milk and is an unsweetened Bengali dessert flavored with cardomom and/or saffron. However I have seen sweetened versions of recipes posted on the internet. This would make a nice presentation baked in individual ramekins.
I did not care for this. I did as another reviewer recommended and did not scrape the condensed milk can clean and this was still way too sweet.
OMG! This is incredible easy and delicious. All my family loved it and asked for me to do it again. Thanks for sharing it!
Very easy and tasty. I made it for Valentine's Day so I added an Oreo crumb crust and drizzled caramel sauce and chocolate sprinkles on top and I used pecans instead of almonds. Next time I will make the plainer version using lowfat yogurt and see how that goes. To confert to metric, for a 300ml can of sweetened condensed milk I used 775ml of yogurt and it worked great. Firms up real nice. Definitely a keeper. Thank you.
Thai Cook Chitima: This is a traditional recipe from Bengal India. Traditionally it is steamed.
Wow... What national is this recipe (Indian, Mexican, or totally fusion)? I will try it next weekend. Are you sure we don't need any flour? Will it stay formed?
I needed a dessert for a going away party and this was perfect.
This was easy and very yummy. Very nice after a spicy Indian meal
