Mishti doi

Mishti doi or mitha dahi is a Bengali yogurt dessert. Mishti doi is prepared from thickened milk which is sweetened and then set into curd.
Recipe of mishti doi/ mitha dahi
1 liter milk
1/4 cup sugar + 2 tsp sugar
2 tsp curd (dahi/yogurt)
1. In a pan, bring milk to boil. Reduce the heat to low and stirring frequently, cook milk till it thickens and reduces to 1/2 of its original quantity. Add sugar and let it dissolve.
2. Turn off the heat and allow the milk to cool down to temperature which is comfortable to touch but still warm.
