Summer special dessert - Aam Bhapa Doi (Steamed Mango Yogurt)

I am enjoying this lockdown time by cooking something special almost on daily basis. This is the time to enjoy mangoes to the fullest and I got three variety mangoes from a Mango vendor from Kolar. The Himampasand, Alphonso and Banganapalli mangoes were too good. Using Alphonso mangoes, I created a simple Bengali dessert called Aam Bhapa Doi (Don't forget to read the note) :)

Serves: 4+ 
Cooking time: ~45 mins


Mango                              - 1 (I used puree of 1 Alphonso mango)
Condensed Milk               - 400 gm ( 1 tin)
Yogurt                               - 400 gm
Cardamom powder           - 1/4 - 1/2 tsp
Pistachios                         - chopped, for garnishing
Mango pieces                   - for garnishing 


  • In a bowl, whisk hung/set yogurt. 
  • To the yogurt, add condensed milk, mango puree, and cardamom powder. Whisk well to ensure no lumps are there. 

  • Transfer the Aam Doi mix to a bowl/claypot in which you want to steam and cover it using aluminium foil.

  • Heat water in the steamer and once water is hot, place the bowl(s) and cover it with a lid. Steam the mango mix for 20-30 mins. 

  • Once Aam Bhapa Doi is ready, take out from the steamer and leave it to cool down. Bring it to room temperature.

  • Refrigerate Aam Bhapa Doi for 6-8 hours before consuming.

  • Before serving garnish the dessert with chopped pistachios and mango pieces.
Note: It's best to use hung yogurt for this recipe. I didn't have much patience and the yogurt I used directly from the pack was very thick. If you prefer the dessert to be less sweet, then reduce the condense milk quantity to 3/4th tin. Aam Bhapa Doi tastes better and creamier if you refrigerator it for 6-8 hours. For immediate usage refrigerate for 1-2 hours.
