It is a long time since my last post. In the meanwhile I did upload two recipes on my YouTube channel during the lock down. The lockdown did not help matters, my blog and the channel did take a backseat. Anyway, one thing that I did realize was that, lockdown or not, comfort food does uplift one’s spirit and Bhaapa Doi or steamed yoghurt is just such a dessert.
Bhaapa Doi is extremely simple to make and it serves as an ideal alternative to mishit doi (sweetened yoghurt).
My channel and blog is called It is Tasty Ma!, so no prizes for guessing that my Ma made it just the way I have demonstrated it in the video. Incidentally I never saw my mum make this, it invariably magically appeared on the table. She always prepared it whenever we were away at school or college. It so happened my mother was once explaining to a friend’s daughter how to make it and I listened to the instructions attentively and retained it in the deep recesses of my brain. After Ma’s demise, I dug into that memory and decided to give it a try and was quite thrilled to find that it turned out so good.
