Mishti Doi – Easier method

Mishti Doi, the word makes me so nostalgic. Takes me back to school days when I spent one year in Calcutta (now Kolkata) and we used to enjoy this delicious mildly sweet and mouth melting sweet called Mishti Doi which was served in individual earthen pots. To me mishti doi, as the name says - Mishti means sweet doi means dahi means curd. So Mishti doi is sweetened curd. When I learned to Shrikand which is also a sort of sweetened curd, I thought it is the same as mishti doi but with another name.. and Yes I was wrong. Mishti doi is done way differently than Shrikand. I searched internet for this recipe and got the traditional way of doing it where the milk is reduced to half and then it is made to a curd.. Now I also saw a lesser difficult method from here and the lazy in me liked the easier method.. I am sharing this for BM with Sweets from Bengal (Course wise meal from any state).
Evaporated Milk - 1 Can
Condensed Milk - 1/2 can
Sugar - 2 table spoons
Curd - 1/3 cup
Cardamom powder - 1/4 tea spoon
Saffron - 1/8 tea spoon
Boiled Milk - 1 cup
Take the thick curd in a muslin cloth and hang it for 30 minutes. This is optional but will make sure that the mishti doi is even more creamier.
In a pan heat the boiled milk and evaporated milk until it starts bubbling. Set the heat to low
In another pan heat sugar until it caramelized and add that to the milk mixture and whisk well to make sure lumps are dissolved
Add condensed milk to the milk mixture and mix all well. Remove from heat and set aside to cool to around 115 degrees F
Mix the hung curd and cardamom powder to the milk mixture and mix well to make sure that it is all well mixed

Preheat the oven to 150 degrees C and
Keep the pots in it the oven for 1 hour. Switch off the oven and allow the pots to be in the oven for 8 - 12 hours or until it is set
Once set refrigerate for at least 4 hours and serve chilled.
