Aam Doi


Mango, the king of the seasonal fruits during summer is also one of my favorites. And the best part of it, Raw or ripe, it furnishes well one's creativity in culinary to experiment in vast ranges of different dishes. In Bengali cuisine mango is not only used in the sweets or desserts but in the main courses too, as raw mangos are used in Daal, fish etc. My recent visit to some eminent swanky Bengali Cuisine Restaurants in Kolkata, enamored my attention to the dessert section. Aam Doi  (Mango Flavoured Sweet Yoghurt) is mostly common in the dessert sections during this searing summer. I often make Mishti Doi (Sweet Yoghurt) at home but never tried Aam Doi. So this time I tried my hand to experiment Aam Doi in my kitchen. And no need to say, everybody in my family savoured it in no time. Of course on the same run, I would like to refer Bong Mom' s CookBook where she gave a nice recipe of Aam Doi. Following is the recipe, how I made it:

Ingredients:

Mango - 1 (medium sized, I made a pulp out of it.)

Thick curd - 1 cup (I used Amul's Masti doi)

Condensed Milk - 1 can (400g pack)

Pistachio - for garnishing


Method:
  1. Pre-heat the oven to 130 degree C.
  2. Beat the curd in a smooth paste so that no lump can be seen.
  3. Add all the other ingredients except the pistachio and blend together nicely.
  4. Take ramekins or an oven proof bowl. Pour the mixture in it and bake it for 10 -25mnts. If you are using ramekins it will take 10-15 mnts. If you are using a single bowl for the given measurement it will take 20-25mnts. Pls keep on checking pricking a toothpick until it comes out smooth.
  5. Take out from the oven cool it. Then refrigerate for an hour and serve with garnished pistachio.

Note: If you want to make Mishti Doi at home, dont add mango and do the rest.

Hi Kamalika,

I am Nidhi, went through your blog found it extremely interesting.

I am writing to introduce a new website that I recently launched (beta) www.masalaminds.com to be a resource for folks to discover and explore eat-outs, foods, spices, etc for a specific culture based on recommendations of that culture locals in that city. It also enables individuals to look for stuff of their own culture while they are away from home whether they have moved to a new area or are visiting for a short time; and of course it allows locals to highlight spots and things from their culture so that others can get useful advice whenever they visit.

We currently have over 8000+ products and businesses on the site and just announced a “Review of the Week” contest, ($100 Amazon.com egiftcard to the winner each week), details available on our blog). http://www.masalaminds.com/blog/review-week-contest

It is evident how passionate you are about food and culture and I would like to personally invite you to review products and services you are familiar with that you feel will be helpful to others . Also, if you have any feedback on the site I would welcome your suggestions.

Warm Regards,
Nidhi
