Aam Doi | Bengali Baked Mango and Yogurt Dessert

Aam Doi – Yet another popular recipe from the state of West Bengal. Mishti Doi is one of the well known sweet from Bengal which is nothing but a sweet yogurt/dahi and the yogurt fermentation process is slightly different from the regular yogurt. Here is Aam Doi – the baked mango yogurt dessert which is a variation to the mishti doi. This single serving dessert is served chill and with the mango and summer season around, isn’t it the perfect time to post this recipe?

Pavani posted Aam Doi as her first recipe during the Journey through cuisines marathon. I bookmarked it right away and tried it for this Father’s Day. We had an awesome Italian lunch outside and for dinner I cooked M’s favorite thali (Sambhar, Rasam, Dry Curry and Appalam) and for dessert we had this Aam Doi. We really enjoyed this dessert which is soft and solid on top and semi-solid in the bottom. This was pretty much like shrikand. Apparently according to the astronomical calendar, yesterday was the first day of summer. So let’s celebrate the beginning of summer with this cool dessert.

I pretty much followed Pavani’s recipe except for a couple of things. I included Elaichi powder and also used sugar and condensed milk combo. I decorated with pomegranate instead of chopped nuts. As I had some left over canned Alphonso mango puree, I used that. It was super sweet so I reduced the sugar quantity accordingly. Adjust the sweetness according to the mango. As I mentioned in the intro, it is a single serving dessert and you can need ramekins for prepare this dessert.

This is a perfect party and potluck dessert too as it can be prepared well ahead and easy to serve. All you have to do is mix all the ingredients together and bake it until set and let it chill and serve. Super easy huh? I had to bake for upto 40 minutes for it to set. But keep an eye on the dessert after 30 minutes. Insert the tooth pick and if it comes out clean, remove it from the oven if not bake for 5 more minutes and check again.  Check it for every five minutes after 30 minutes until set.
