Baked Dulce de leche Yogurt - Mishti Doi - Guest Post for Indian Simmer

IMG_7269

Today’s recipe is inspired from a traditional sweet recipe from the city of Kolkatta called Mishti Doi, which M has childhood memories of. Mishti Doi is also called Lal doi meaning red yogurt due to it characteristic reddish color. It is made by caramelizing milk and then setting fresh yogurt in earthen pots. Considering I always have dulce de leche on hand, sweetening my hot chocolate and drizzling it over everything I bake, I figured it will work great for adding that caramelized flavor for Mishti doi.

Prerna from Indian Simmer is one of the best people I have met through my blog and when she asked me to be part of her "Indian Simmer Loves" series, I said absolutely yes! You can find today's recipe and an interview on her blog.
